I disagree.

In fact, the title of this clause is a bit misleading. The
title says our priorities are both our users, and free software;
the clause itself mentions only our users.

"We will be guided by the needs of our users." Our users
have indicated that non-free is currently required. 
And that means us developing it, not us passing it off.
Which part of that is not clear to you?
