What's wrong? I've said that I will help OSM to grow doing my part in 
mapping the areas I know and where I'll go, but if I'll need to travel 
where I've no maps, why couldn't I use a commercial map I've bought 
(running on free software)?

OSM won't grow if people will definitely use commercial maps, not if 
they use them as a temporary tool!
