This particularly thought stream was prompted by a desire to find a way to convey just how obnoxious the "I'm OK with proprietary tools, so you should be OK with proprietary tools" mindset can be.

I'm personally entirely OK with making the pragmatic argument for "we're compromising here, to further this other goal over there" (such as reducing the load on volunteers in a community context, or improving strategic focus in a business context), but that's different from telling people that their desire to avoid using proprietary software is invalid and not worth taking into account at all.
