These arguments cannot really stand water.

All free software movements should follow standard open terms for
accepting donations.

A draft should be prepared with relevant clauses. Any sane free
software movement should be expected to comply with it. It should be
possible for Governments and other organizations to comply with it.

Nothing is so vague as to defy documentation.
