Of course - or someone could provide some sort of argument more 
compelling than "more people might possibly work on the driver". The 
Synaptics driver isn't terribly important, but it's likely that there 
are going to be more (L)GPL drivers appearing over time. If that 
situation doesn't seem desirable, then people will actually have to make 
some sort of statement as to why.
