as you defined a sharing license, they would not be allowed to
redistribute copies of the code-base commercially, unless they
first deleted the non-commercially-licensed files

i will concede this one - it is not strictly a problem, assuming
that people understand the implications of multiple licenses in
the same code-base; but in practice, it is somewhat of a trap,
because most people probably do not understand the implications

of course, if the forge is itself a commercial operation, the
forge would not have permission to distribute such a code-base in
the first place, without some explicit permission granted via
the ToS

A4.1 takes it for granted, that the author has granted explicit
permission to the commercial forge, to distribute
non-commercially-licensed files on their behalf
