Yes, it's probably better.
I still think that, as long as a real distinction between Libre and
non-Libre Software is maintained, most problems related to being
commercial or not are quite secondary on the long run.
A Libre Software project tends to be "honest" by its very nature.
It's hard to spread outright lies about a product when its source code
is available and some hundred persons look at it (and usually try to
do things the original developers couldn't even think about - I
receive reports on AGNULA/DeMuDi that really leave me perplexed

That's fine - I love dreams, we would go nowhere without them. ;)

I think that would be a good thing to have. Be prepared for some
*long* discussion, however.
It could make sense to draft a proposal and reserve a slot during the
2nd LAD conference for presenting it (as well as on the relevant
mailing lists, of course), what do you think?

Are you going to open it? :)

I'd like to have a clearer understanding of what the legal situation
of the Consortium is (or is planned to be). I do understand that
Daniel James is *very* busy preparing the booth at the Sounds Expo
2004, so we might as well stop making noise and wait for some answers
before going on (I'm not trying to pressure Daniel or anybody else, I
just believe in making small steps and fixing bugs/problems when they
arise - the legal status of the Consortium in all of this discussion
is, if not a bug, at least a point of uncertainty I'd like to see
resolved as soon as possible).
