Kudos for the decision!

To me the change in licensing policy sends a very clear clear signal 
about aims of the project.

Let me rephrase it this way:

"We as a community are aimed at creating an open ecosystem for scalable 
distributed services. We share the understanding that such an ecosystem 
is worth orders of magnitude more than the sum of what any of us can 
make alone. We therefore work together, as a group of equals, making 
profit from the new solutions that the ecosystem makes possible, rather 
than exploiting and ultimately sucking dry the ecosystem itself."

Hm. It sounds a bit lofty, but I think it expresses the idea.
