It's not artificial. The em28xx merge has been delayed for more than
a year with little visible progress.

That's a disaster.

And it doesn't really matter whose fault it is.

If you have technical reasons why Markus' code shouln't be
merged (like "breaks support for the X card", or even
"breaks all non-em28xx cards" or "crashes under SMP" etc.),
then you should let us know about it.

Note that your hybrid tuner proposal is not dismissed
by merging Markus' code, however time is important here,
and I don't think it's OK to delay the merge another
couple of weeks/months until your proposal is fully
implemented, tested and merged.
