Doesn't it make Unvanquished unusable for valid uses like pre-installation in computer clubs or commercial game events? Not to mention Linux distros like Fedora or Debian will never include it in main repositories. Besides, what's the point not making the game free as in freedom in its entirety when you explicitly don't want to make profit of it anyway?
But, well, I can somewhat understand people wanting to publish their work under NoCommercial, but see this.

So mappers can't adapt the textures even a little (eg. paint them with colors)! NoDerivs so k3wl! Such w0w! Much prot3ctive!
If you ever make a wall that can't properly accommodate any existing tile size / angle...
Ok, maybe it's good for self-sufficient drawings, which usually can't be properly modified without re-drawing the whole thing from scratch, and having them modified hurts the authors' egos, but it's pretty silly to use them for textures, which are tremendously more versatile and useful if they can be adapted for particular map places.
