It is called realism. If they had a realistic approach to design. Didn't bullshit too much. Had proper expectations about their final goal, capabilities, prices and time scales then I would be first to cheer.

I have cheered for the developers of MiniMig (Dennis van Weeren, Jakub Bednarski), Suska (Wolfgang Förster), FPGA Arcade (MikeJ) and even some members of NatAmi (their lead coder Thomas Hirsch seems to be a good guy).

The ideas are admirable. But when they discover that there is a technical impass (such as high speed 68k compatibility using existing coldfire chips, or the speed and cost of FPGA chips) they need to hold up their hands and say "Ah yes, this isn't going to work is it?" instead of spending years making people believe (and in some cases pay) for something that will never become anything.
