I don't understand why you insist that the acceptor should have
obligations. As far as I can see, it would be best if the acceptor gets
donations without any obligations. FSF, for instance, retains the right
to criticise the donor if he/she/it goes against Free Software. I don't
think FSF accepts money that comes with any string attached. People
contribute to FSF because they believe in Free Software and would like
to contribute to its growth. Am I going wrong somewhere in my logic?
