Totally matches Stallman's philosophy

Not at all. Yes, the client-side is OK, but the server-side (eg Google Docs) is completely closed. It would have to be Affero GPL to allow you to deploy a modified version of the web app.

Not really. A response when someone tries to sell these newfangled horseless carriages could be:
