This restriction is a problem for me. I typeset both commercial and
noncommercial documents. I cannot say how often I will use a
particular font, thus I look at the price and if it is reasonable for
me, I buy it (and I have not used so far a lot of commercial fonts I
bouhgt 6 years ago). I do not want to audit my documents to see
whether the commercial ones contain only the licensed sources. I have
therefore only two types of fonts:

1. Free fonts that can be used without restriction

2. Commercial fonts that I bought

I often use commercial fonts even in noncommercial documents (but in
such a case I am not allowed to give the TeX sources).
