That's not very true, only the last paragraph contains this point.

The way the proposal has been phrased an discussed requires at a minimum
different IPs so that users canot be confused by seening non-free stuff on
the main server. (that 'It is too Specific' point..) Getting another IP
might be doable but we still wouldn't have a machine to use for the new
'master.non-free' which some people want.

Maybe I should add that explicitly to the text then because it IS what
will happen.
