So, the Free *Software* Foundation should not be promoting it, if it has 
nothing to do with software or free software.  I don't much mind which 
way you want to argue it, but the FSF should not promote the FDL.

I also disagree that it is a free documentation licence.  Documentation 
with unnecessary uneditable adverts/propaganda which cannot be removed 
are not free in most senses, and an immoral waste of paper when printed.
