Yep. I was going to comment on this point too, so I'll just add what i wanted to say as a reply to yours.
What benefit is there to me, as a user, or as a free software developer for some other entity (whether a human individual, company, corporation, foundation, etc) to have a "competitive advantage" in some aspect of the software I use?
If i'm not a user of that entity's particular release of the software, I don't benefit at all. In fact, I'm disadvantaged because a) I don't have the "competitive" feature, and (worse) b) I have to suffer the resulting twisty little maze of forks, all slightly different.
If I am a user of that particular release, then I get the benefit of the feature but have a) put myself at risk of vendor lock-in, and b) also suffer from the twisty maze of forks.
So, where's the benefit to me? or to any other user or developer?
None that I can see. None at all.
AFAICT, "competitive advantage" is not only incompatible with Free Software / Open Source, it is the antithesis of it.
