Well for the same reason Suse, RedHat and all the other LinuxDistros take money for their tech support. They often don't take part in the kernel development and still profit from the community effort. Nobody complains about this. So I don't see anything bad about it. If it helps bringing Gecko into companies (which are often dependend on a professional tech support), I don't care who earns money with it, especially if it is a person that is still actively participating in the development process!
