I don't get your point. The more money involved, the more oss advances. May it be in LoC or in quality. So this money is an incentive to get things done earlier.
It should be free of choice whether a person who is willing to code (that you can use free of charge btw.) takes money for it or not. In the end it's only about having now or having in the next five years. And as you can see, there are people out there who want to get specific parts earlier.
And the GoSC money is available anyway. So don't mind.
