The issue is what it costs you, not who benefits. The GPL requires the
exact same thing -- that you make any intellectual contribution of your
own available to others -- the only difference is that the GPL requires
you give it to various users, and the ABC-DFL requires you give slightly
more rights to ABC. By contrast, requiring you to email people, or pay
a fee, is an entirely different cost, and they happen to be ones we find
unacceptably awkward as far as maintaining packages go.
