Compared to 0xDAO the code of Solidex looked "SOLID" as said by Charlie from Curve. Would like to see the opinion of third parties that were not founders of 0xDAO to confirm the code of 0xDAO. Given that emissions start in a few days, the 3 months advance does look attractive and gives Synapse the opportunity to gain more voting power in the long term if the locking game is played correctly. There is also the question when the 0xDAO contracts will get deployed. If it's gonna take a while there is a window of time where Synapse has to manage the veNFT itself. While that is fine, the protocol and its users will be missing out on rewards that would otherwise have been given out to Solidex partners.
As to the bridge, SpookySwap integrated the MultiChain router into its frontend. As SpookySwap is one of the biggest projects among the 0xDAO partners I'm wondering how much influence that would actually have if 0xDAO would go cross-chain. If 0xDAO was really looking to work with Synapse from the start it would have asked Synapse to join when 0xDAO was founded.
