Given that LibreOffice is an important and viable alternative to paid-for office productivity software

You seem to imply here that LibreOffice will be distributed for free. Note that, as far as I know, the Document Foundation never issued public statements about this (although I would be very surprised if LibreOffice stable versions are not made available for free), and that under the licensing terms anybody can redistribute LibreOffice and ask a fee for it.

I hoped that the questionable naming of LibreOffice would at least have the good effect of clarifying the "free/libre" issue...
