I think it's more a case of the dice rolling and we turned up.

I got the distinct impression from their reply Google wishes to give
a year off to every veteran GSoC org beginning from last year, with a
chunk being given a year off each year from now on.

Basically, when it's your turn, it's your turn. If we weren't
rejected this year, it would have been next year.
