I don't think we should let external links to possible free/libre
software appear in public-facing pages unless we make create proper
entries for those software.

The Directory is a place where anyone can add software entries for
review, then some evaluators/reviewers do one or two review checks (with
varying depth of detail) and approve it or not in a way similar to
saying that is, at that time and to that specific version, considered
free/libre. If we simply link to a possibly free/libre software without
actually reviewing it, we run the risk of, for example, end up linking
to a software for Windows that depends on Microsoft Visual C++

Also, I don't know if you recall this David Hedlund, but when we created
the Collection namespace, both of us agreed that it would be used as a
means of listing already-reviewed and curated/selected free/libre
software that do some task to replace non-free ones.
