I think its worth pointing out that free (gratis) is not what people were 
referring to.
The question was if the code is Free (libre) as in speech.  And it is not.

Note, for example, that there is no download for any Free (libre again) 
operating systems like Linux.

Moreover, its important to realize that by using closed and proprietary 
formats like this, and like the .doc files you use for the meeting 
minutes you are continuing to reinforce the believes that uoml is not an 
open standard, but just a way for a company to get more people to use 
their software.
