The main exception might be if a company provides a paid-subscription-only 
network service that communicates with a GIMP plugin released under AFERO 
license then said company would need to provide all subscribers with the source 
code that implements the paid service being used.  If the plugin is integrated 
tightly enough derivative work copyright rules come into play and the whole 
integrated system source may need to be released to satisfy the license.  AFERO 
is more restrictive than plain GPL.
