I disagree. Forks are usually only useful when they have other needs 
than upstream. Not to be confused with the short lived fork model of 
Github where you create a fork and try to send a PR upstream.

If the only reason the fork was created (and then often, not maintained) 
is that the base project failed, the collaborative aspect of open source 
fell through. That is, it's much more healthy for the ecosystem if 
people would join forces to make the original live on.
