I don't think this is a fair assessment. There are several desktops that are
based on the GTK libraries. A GTK application that uses the library but does not
use any desktop specific libraries / extensions / etc, can be considered desktop
agnostic for any of the GTK desktops.

I'm in the camp of people that dislike the new gedit and I would welcome a
maintained text editor that uses GTK but is not linked against mate or
cinnamon or xfce or any other GTK desktop.

I have not looked in detail into these new applications, but in general I think
that the idea sounds like a good one and I don't think it's fair to dismiss them
as desktop-agnostic because they use the GTK library.
