Nobody is forced to work on non-free. Some people choose to.
Others want to stop them from doing so because they consider
their ideals to be more important than the work and freedom of others.

By all means demote non-free to a lesser status, though.

We will lose users if non-free is removed. Be sure of that.
A developer split may be a good idea. Those who want to honour
the current contract with our users can continue to do so; those
who want to change it on a whim can do that too.
