"The big unanswered question is whether or not the FSF's action does more harm than good in the effort to spread free software. "
Judgement call or not, I'm glad the FSF has made a stand on this principle. Like trademarks, a principles values are significantly diluted if they're not respected and protected. The values of freedom came through the GPL because RMS believes and stands up for those principles.
