This basically means the end of free open-source software (OSS) as we currently know it.

While most free OSS comes "as is", there used to be an implicit guarantee that the description matches what's "in the box." If this is no longer true, users of the software must spend time verifying each package (and each new version of the package), time that they previously spent improving their product. Under these circumstances, they might as well buy a commercial package that comes with guarantees that the package is as described.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
