I agree with that preference (and with either being better than "too").

But any of these can be read more easily than the previous version as
demoting non-technical contributions back to something second-class,
if we only value them "in addition to" technical ones.

If an extra word is really needed then perhaps it should be "we
equally value and encourage"?
