The difference is that references to non-free software would not be
provided by GNU ELPA package to users.

If free software references on GNU.org are extreme, then my standpoint
is extreme too, but I am not a conformist that has desires to be in a
non-extreme class of people so I do not mind how it is classified,
seen, perceived or criticized.

I do not make my analysis or present my personal opinions to conform
them to non-extreme class.

Just as the GNU website does not provide references to non-free
software catalogue, then why should such package be part of GNU ELPA
and unintentionally or intentionally promote non-free software. Note
the "GNU" in GNU ELPA.

And Happy New Free Software Year.
