You're right. But it's still far less important than the cross-platform feature of Gnustep or especially GDL2 and GSWeb. Those three are things, the other don't have at all. And

Many cross-platform APIs do already exist, many of them are even far more usable than GNUstep as of today, so this feature really does not (and IMHO will never) make GNUstep be unique. But then I could see a chance for some Mac OS X developers to release their products to a wider audience, but unfortunately there is much more than Cocoa on Mac OS X, so again I doubt that GNUstep alone can be this solution.
