That's one of the reasons for open source. You can enjoy one implementation, and who cares if it follows a spec. Python and Ruby communities (so long as they avoid Jython and the like) get to enjoy this situation. Java (at the core) effectively enjoys this too, even though it's not open source. The thought of having two canonical implementations scares people.
One of the benefits of Mono is that (despite trying to be somewhat compatible with MS.NET) it's standing up as its own name in the Linux crowd. By being its own thing (which psychologically drags in Gtk# and such like), people can think, "I'm coding to Mono." I think that's why it's getting some traction. It's being an implementation with momentum rather than just an implementation of a spec.
