My proposal is to only warn users against licenses that are non-free.
GRASS is a Free Software project that is why most users will
expect us to be aware of non-free solutions.
This is really has value to our readers.
And we also make sure that if people decide to use that software
they are warned. 
Friends don't let friends use drugs^H^H^H^H^Hproprietary software.  ;)

Otherwise we also might need to link all the proprietary 
or semi-proprietary software that can do useful tasks
in combination with GRASS.

If this is too much maintanence effort the alternative
would be to not mention non-free solutions, but
that also has its drawbacks.
