I think this is a good reason not to list *any* of the products by name
in the documentation, but instead refer to a page on say techdocs that
can be more easily updated. And that can contain both free and non-free
projects, under clear headlines showing the difference.

The documentation is about PostgreSQL, not about third-party products,
be they free or commercial. Our *website*, however, should give guidance
on which specific products we (as a community) know are stable and
usable along with PostgreSQL (as we do today under downloads, but could
very well do based on specific uses like replication as well)
