@bradfa in the Understanding MongoDB's Business Model paragraph, it seems to be critical of the "selling exceptions" business model in this case of MongoDB's application of the model. However, many companies using GPLv3 follow this same business model (a classic example is Qt). I'm unclear as to how this model (which is independent of the SSPL license choice) advances the other arguments. Perhaps it's just to set the context for the rest of the analysis, but it's always a shakedown more-or-less.
