Matthew this is near to the heart of our disagreement.  That you
cannot see the main issue, and its scale, makes this
conversation, at certain junctures of argument, difficult.

I am attempting to write something that will make the main issue

But here are two headers of my argument: If we do not defend the
ground on which free software lives and grows, we will shortly
have no free software.  Part of the ground is that we need ask no
permission of Microsoft, nor anybody else, to convenienetly use
any services provided by the hardware, services which under your
proposed plan will only be conveniently available to Microsoft.
