To be honest, I rather read it as him saying 'commercialization' but
actually thinking about non-freeness. That seemed to be the actual
thrust of his thinking, if you disregard the single work
'commercialization'. His beef with S3 and Zarafa wasn't that they're
'commercial', really, but that they're not entirely free (in Zarafa's
case, not entirely free viewed as an entire project).
