Perhaps because it's been *debunked*?  "remaining 100% free software"
includes "remaining software".  That's how English works.

If I say that a racist, sexist club will "remain 100% white men", it does
not mean that the men will remain white and that black women will be
allowed in.  It just plain doesn't.

Perhaps that analogy will convince some of the people who still doubt?

There are none so blind as those who will not see.
