Why? It places a lot of rather problematic restrictions on the content.
First, it makes it impossible to distribute as part of a larger whole for
which something is paid (for example as part of a linux distribution).
Second, it is legal trouble since the definition of what is 'commercial'
can be stretched to fit the view of whoever has the most expensive
lawyers. For example, is putting it on a web page with ads 'commercial'?
