Why do you think FSFE consider them as seperated groups? 

I personally do not consider Open Source and Free Software as seperate
_groups_. They are different names for the same thing. Open Source is a
failed marketing term for Free Software. Free Software is the better
term, that is why we had the "We speak about Free Software" [1]
