I think this rewording nails it on the head: the spirit that we (I?)
want here in #3 is that we _should_ strive to make our tools as
accessible as possible with regard to acquisition, use, and reuse:
including (as Katie pointed out) the accessibility issue of cost. The
Social Contract should encourage everyone who works on Tor-related
projects to keep things like this (freedom of availability &
accessibility) in mind. (Along with the other points in the Social
Contract.) I think it does a great job at that.

Kudos to everyone who put this together and everybody who's been
contributing to this conversation.
