I asked Dr. Nikolaus Schaller, the lead developer for the GTA04 for his recollection on why the decision was made. You can read it here:
Note in particular that if a genuine alternative is available (at reasonable price in small quantities) it could be swapped in for the next board version (after the "Early Adopter" boards are out). So if you have a concrete suggestion, and particularly if you know of availability, I'm sure your input would be warmly received.

"And I think we should do something today even if it is only 99% free."
If that's his position, why does he even bother with FSF's bizarre suggestion?
