That's a very good question! It doesn't look like they commit to only
free software. In fact here is what I found on the website:

Note for plugin developers: If you wrote a plugin and want JOSM to find
it, it should be enough to add the plugin to the ​OpenStreetMap
Subversion Repository (SVN) and it will automatically appear on this
page. If you cannot put your plugin into SVN then edit this page and
insert a link to your plugin jar file into the page; after a few
minutes your plugin will be downloaded and the MANIFEST file will be
used to extract information for the table below. 

I don't know if that implies being listed at that page only or also in
the plugin manager. I don't use plugins, so I didn't notice, but
attempting to use one failed anyway:

org.openstreetmap.josm.plugins.PluginException: Une erreur est survenue
dans le greffon buildings_tools. Cause :
org.openstreetmap.josm.plugins.PluginException: Une erreur est survenue
dans le greffon buildings_tools

I don't know how to load plugins outside of the plugin manager. Ideas?
