On the same basis that we promise not to hide bugs?  Or not to rely on
non-free software?

Ahem, this proposal tries to assure a delegate that his scruples are
unwarranted and that he should go on as previously planned.  After
reading Anthony's comment <20040601093412.GA6433@azure.humbug.org.au>,
I think this is a non-issue anyway.

As a whole, I think it's in line.  IMHO, it's not more off target than
proposal E, for example.
