Since this is a question, I suppose it's worth answering here.

No, this wasn't orchestrated by the FreeBSD Core Team.  As others have
already mentioned, see for the
details.  I must confess it's difficult to find how the designs were
assessed, but my recollection was that it was a vote of all FreeBSD
developers, currently I think about 300.  There were 181 votes.

The FreeBSD core team consists of 9 members, elected every 2 years.
Currently one of the positions is vacant.  See
for more details.

Jun Kuriyama has been reading this thread.  He is both a core team
member and the coordinator of the contest.  I'm sure other core team
members have been following as well.

Anything can be reversed.  I don't know if it's being considered.  But
if you feel so strongly about this, any further discussion belongs on
the advocacy group.  If you don't want to join that group, by
definition you don't feel strongly enough.
