2.  Nothing stops development of your module and it's local
deployment.  Everything does encourage one to work with the community
that supports the project you rely on.  It is in everyones best
interest to not add additional burden to the active volunteers whose
support and time you rely on.  That reputation that the Drupal
community cares about these issues.  Because you have a business, it
is in your best interest to actively participate and help ease those
burdens others carry.

My neighbor asked me to watch their kids because they had a medical
emergency.  I had plans.
My neighbor asked me to help unload a heavy piece of equipment they
rented.  It got me up early.

Sometimes, being a member of a community is inconvenient.  Sometimes
with Open Source it's also about considering the community while you
make a profit because that helps you much more in the long run.

I hope we can count you in.
