Similar arguments w4ere advanced before we had the DFSG:
people were saying that being free to distribute was good enough,
that we needed to compromise in order to survive. I think

Finagle's Eighth Law: If an experiment works, something has gone
wrong. Finagle's Ninth Law: No matter what results are expected,
someone is always willing to fake it. Finagle's Tenth Law: No matter
what the result someone is always eager to misinterpret it.
Finagle's Eleventh Law: No matter what occurs, someone believes it
happened according to his pet theory.
