There's a material loss of freedom, just like there is with Fedora's 
trademark policy or our relationship with Mozilla. Sometimes we 
sacrifice some freedoms in return for something that we feel is more 
worthwhile. I can understand objecting to that from a philosophical 
perspective, but this is not an unprecedented decision.
