Isn't it all completely open source?

I just peeked at the source, and it says it's MIT licensed, but without the BDFL[1], would we see progress in the spirit its intended?

I worry about this with Angular too, but given that Google has obvious areas of synergy, I'm way less concerned about its doom.

Maybe, but they probably have 5 years of cash, so I personally wouldn't worry about it. There can be a new BFDL should the unthinkable happen, so long as the code is open source.
