I don't want to weaken those criteria I fully support them I even
applauded the openmotif kicking and spend a considerable amount of
testing and fixing build problems against lesstif.

All I'm arguing for is an additional repo for goverment / educational /
home users for which the non commercial use clause has 0 effect, thus
for this large group of users the software is as free as DFSG free
software (unless they want to sell it).

There is a demand for such a repo and there are multiple FE contributers
who would like to see such a repo, so why not. What harm can it do?
