How does this protect the integrity of a product like LibreOffice?

I wasn't suggesting anyone do it, just objecting to the suggestion that
there isn't "any situation or place where (in the current world) it would
make sense to make a business out of selling freely available
Anyway, the discussion is off-topic so I'm going to stop posting now.

In the case of modifications, there is a effectively charge for the
opportunity to have the software plus the modification.

It's just that the charge pays for creating it the modification in the
first place rather than for allowing the user to have a copy of
something that existed anyway.
