1. It's not really promotion of FOSS it's number 10 on the list so very much way down on their list of priorities.
2. Isn't this what the FSFE already does?
3. Isn't this what the open document foundation already does?
4. Isn't this what the Electronic Frontier already does?
5. God there's so many of these do-gooders out there!

I could go on but I think you get my point. Actually I did notice that Electronic Frontier and Digital rights group gets a mention on a another site EDRi that links from the "wepromise" site http://edri.org/about/#members I'm always uneasy when you have have to search for who's behind something, makes you wonder if there's something to hide? :-D
