That is even more important that it is the main way of benefiting from 
copyleft, by receiving work from full-time paid employee, that will help 
compete with full-time paid employee proprietary software.

The only and main moral standing and guard of GNU is rms (and some other non-
fully-technical committees, mandated by him), not maintainers, nor developers 
or contributors.  And I don’t expect FSF to do that (especially as it is a 
non-technical entity).
