Using a package is not the same as supporting it: it actually places
additional burdens on its developers.  When there are no additional
resources moved to them as well, their package has no tangible advantage
from this sort of "support".  And when this makes the sitation worse at
the "supporting" package, the total situation is a loss for GNU.
