I totally agree with you on this point. However, I'm interpreting
Warner's statment as expressing his disappointment that people are
'foolishly' still trying to use the concept of license keys to restrict
software. Kinda goes against everything the FSF is against; not that it
minds _that_much_ that people still exhausting energy trying :)
