I can't see why they would, much like a few other proposals along
similar lines. It doesn't even conflict with most of the other things
people have been suggesting.

I don't expect we'd maintain this for very *long*, though. And it all
depends on somebody caring enough about non-free to want to go to the
trouble of keeping it around (I predict that in this scenario, its
size would be greatly reduced).
