I think it is a helpful exercise to have a starting position that forks are

I'm not sure about that... Some forks are good, some are
bad. It's the reasons that make them either good or bad,
but the forks themselves aren't. In fact, the ability to
fork is one of the great benefits of FOSS.

OT: but, of course, numerous forks, like the uncontrolled
    growth which is cancer, is bad for the community, imo.

Cheers!
