-bad means these element are unstable (properties can change). There is
no repo for unstable element that has a problematic licence and
unstable API. But yes, this element belongs to -ugly for it's next
This question has been raised quite a number of times. There is a general
misunderstanding of bad plugins
There are essentially 4 categories
1.a Good distributable
1.b Good non-distributable
2.a Bad distributable
2.b Bad non distributable
Currently 1.a is called good, 1.b is called ugly, 2.a & 2.b collectively
I personally prefer 4 categories instead of existing 3
Also note that non distributable is not only due to GPL, but also due to
code which might violate certain patents
