Well, technically it is advertising, but I don't see why it is necessarily 
bad. Developer contributions live on in old release notes for many years even 
once the developer stops contributing, why not with companies?  Or to put it 
another way, would it be so bad if people looking in the 7.3 release notes 
saw Great Bridge listed as a corporate sponsor for that release?
