First of all, as has been pointed out by others, the headline is misleading, 
since KDE and GNOME are not actually parties to the proposal and since the 
proposal was not even accepted.

Secondly, IMHO, allowing fee-charging downloads is an anti-feature of an 
application repository that I specifically do not want. One of the nicest 
features of GNU/Linux is that I can just open the package manager and 
download whatever I want without having to pay anything.

And finally, Red Hat trying to monetize the Desktop would be the worst 
nightmare. I do not want my desktop GNU/Linux to be "monetized" by anyone, 
neither by Red Hat nor by any other company.
