These people don't serve you, they do what they do because they enjoy it. The idea of squeezing the life out of programmers to please bosses is just terrible. They already allow people to use their work for free, and allow anyone else to strip out the fun and make it corporate if they wish, which means there are people you can pay to get what you wish from it.
What you're talking about should happen at the distros. --strip-fun should not be applied upstream. Anyone who doesn't like it can go get their own hobby to not enjoy.
