One can make whatever statements he likes for the deployment options and
the corresponding price, but, as you said, this is not enforceable. The
price becomes a donation and it is a moral issue if somebody follows the
"wishes" of a developer.

But if I were a customer of a provider of open source software, I would
ask the provider if he does follow the wishes of the developer for this
moral reason.
