See "live free or die". If you want to live in a world where you can't

Nice theory.

At the end of the day I don't care if you want to produce this stuff and
sell it to people. Fine, the interface proposed is clean enough that it
doesn't pee on other work, but don't expect the rest of the world to
follow mindlessly into your slave pit driven by your fear.
