IIRC last year Mozilla and the Linux Foundation were rejected. There's
really nothing jaw dropping or outrageous about it.

For a small org two slots can make a huge difference, for larger orgs
not being accepted will generally not endanger the project itself.
Google is simply trying to put the money where it has the biggest
impact. I think that's a good thing.
