The intent was to delegate areas of focus to different individuals. It was
inspired by conversions over IRC. It should make involvement and
development more modular, which is important not only to the testing

There are no true "infrastructure components" unless you come to consider
plug-ins. There are third-party components, however, such as TinyMCE, which
serves as a WYSIWYG front-end to composition.

WordPress.com was probably worked on in parallel to the 2.0 milstone, though
it began months beforehand for all I can tell. It is work in progress too
and it appears to mature alongside wp.org.
The extent of WordPress.com probably verges 200,000 blogs, but many of them
are dormant. Some of them serve as placeholder for API keys, which are
needed for the Akismet plug-in.
As in most blogging networks, many registered blogs are abandoned, but the
same applies to local wp.org installations. As for the numbers, someone
once quoted a number which exceeded a million, but I find this rather
absurd. The download counter says very little due to bugfix releases,
failed installations and a single download that spawns many blogs. Also
confer WordPress MU.
