   XEmacs, after all, does meet the criteria of free software.

Actually and unfortunately, we do not know whether it does.

Certainly, the main authors intend that.  But they have not collected
the legal paperwork necessary to prove it to a hostile court.

I agree that

   Forcing the maintainers ... to have different distribution paths

is wrong.  But the sad truth is that legally (although not morally)
the effort is a waste for themselves and others until the very
bothersome legal requirements are met.
