Inclusivity is indeed the key here, especially for a show as impenetrable
as Gundam. However I, personally, think it is a shame that Wing was
shown instead of one of the UC shows. Whilst I have nothing against Wing
I feel that Wing has given the wrong impression as to what most Gundam
is like.

Similar what Manga did to "anime" in the UK, but admittedly on a much
smaller scale.

There wasn't. The people that have made this choice are ones with other
political agendas...
