I don't see why you shouldn't be able to commit that. I'm close to 
committing a module that assists you in signing up for a commercial text 
link ad program and don't see how your module or my module differ from 
the adsense module that Khalid referred to. Do you have a link to the 
discussion that surrounded your efforts to commit your module? As I 
stated previously, I, as a module consumer, would expect full disclosure 
about your ties to the commercial vendor (in my case they paid me to 
write the module and will reward me if anyone uses it), but that is more 
of an unwritten rule.
