Of course it is helpful to write free software that implements some useful features found elsewhere. Though for that, we can't steer users to review non-free software as that means to let them give up on their freedom. Many features may be discussed without running non-free sofware. And in same cases one has to run non-free software to write free software. I find it unfortunate that some people create proprietary software that uses Org files. However, IMHO and according to principles of free software, such as not to steer users towards non-free software, then no links to proprietary software shall be added from Org website pages, as Org is part of Emacs which is part of GNU fully free operating system distributions.
