I agree.

However, a solution could be to add a command which display
about_box of the plugins.

Thus the advertisement is inside the plugin, we are not breaking
the GPL and still comply with the license.

If 3Dconnexion makes part of the path, we can imho make some
effort ourself. I'm very confident on adding HID for Os X (i have
working code for that), but dont know for other Oses and the official
SDK is the only way to support older serial devices (not on os x  
though )

Still we wont be able to distribute the plugin with blender itself.
