We can make the choice to survive on our own and design an individual system, but what's the point of it? We don't want to be forever on our own, and we have observed that many people are excited about the perspective we are forming.
We technically can survive on the oceans, but we can only do it together, so we want to design collectively the system the community will use and modify over time, we need to build the community.
But we cannot wait for everybody to agree on our model, so we need to propose some ideas, designs (compatible standards), constitution, an architectural API.
