It has been a few years, now, that Linux has a strong enough presence in the networking world that it can get away with taking this sort of position
Even if Linux in general has a strong enough presence, does kernel.org Linux have it? The rejection in question is only for kernel.org Linux, which almost nobody runs. The Linuxes that matter -- Red Hat, Suse, etc. probably will not follow suit, since their customers want their computers to talk the the existing Internet more than they want to take a stand against bad router owners.
