Considering the general bemoaning of a lack of ConTeXt manuals
(whether for money or free) directed at the common user, I must say
that I find this license choice surprising.  It would not appear to me
to serve the interests of the ConTeXt developers to stop any
commercial endeavor of providing ConTeXt documentation.
