I read with interest sensible reasons not to list non-free software. I 
think that is a situation that free software can never win, because two 
software packages are almost never identical.  That does not always mean 
that one is better than the other - they may just do things in different 
ways and it may frustrate users who knew the legacy proprietary package 
when they have to relearn.

Would it be acceptable to list common file extensions or MIME types and 
list the applications which can open them?

Could this be shared with mailcap-like files?  (Do gnome and kde still 
use them?  GNUstep has NSMIMETypes.)

Hope that helps,
