I recall that as well. Rumors... sometimes they become true.
By the way, we're really imagining this disparity between clean Android and OEM skins. The fact of the matter is stock Gingerbread hasn't liberated us from the issues which we unapologetically shun those skins for; how they hamper the experience, slow the phone down, etc. These problems still exist to some degree in stock Gingerbread. Some problems, in fact, seem even more glaring (random ringtone changes, rebooting during phone calls, etc). Granted, a clean Google Android is still preferred over OEM skins, but we're creating this gulf that doesn't exist as widely as some think it does between clean Android and OEM skins. Likewise, we blow out of proportion the audacity of bloatware. Yes, it's junk, and no, we don't want to see them, but do they do any real harm? The answer which no one wants to admit is no.
Given also that developers will likely port whatever Android iterations over (sometimes with improvements), I'm really beginning to reevaluate the worth of the Nexus line.
