What you want is a forum for *publishers* of Linux documentation, not
authors of it.
I think I can see how what you're talking about relates to that idea.
Get a whole bunch of *publishers* into a room, make sure they're
coloured with shades of grey (gray) from "free" to "non-free" as
appropriate to the works they publish, and somehow hope that the most
successful will lead the rest, or at least that the others will follow?
I still think this could be achieved without the LDP having to suggest
that non-free works are endorsed by the LDP.
Didn't we already discuss the idea that the LDP should maintain a
bibliography of Linux documentation somewhere, tagged with licensing
