It is not "antagonistic" not to make the FSF-maintained version of
Emacs a rallying ground for Windows-only extensions.  That would be
rather pointless, in contrast to consistently maintaining
functionality that is the same or similar across platforms.

I think it was pretty clear that if this feature was implemented in a
way that did not exclude free operating systems, there would be no
problem with it.
