You're ignoring a couple of things:

1) He has the right do do this. 2) Large corporations like dealing with a single entity that can provide all the answers. If he can do that, more power to him - it'll save the developers being bugged with requests for help. 3) He's going to (hopefully) develop LDAP support - something the moz effort doesn't currently have. With any luck, he might even submit that GPL'ed code into the trunk.

Just because he's making money of Mozilla doesn't make him evil.
