No amount of license changes will prevent site administrators making their 
own changes to their LaTeX installation, and I would hope major distributors 
would have enough respect for their users and the LaTeX community not to make 
such a gratuitous change in any case. No, I do not believe this is a good 
argument for making a package unfree.
