Stefan, I agree on that, but as stated, there are several cases where AGPL will play against your own customer that pays the development. So it's good to have the choice and to decide.

Well, a module licensed under LGPL allows a proprietary module to be
built on top of it. It gives these proprietary modules a distinct
competitive advantage over their open source dependencies and lowers the
return on investment in these open source contributions, which is why I
strongly prefer the AGPL for OCA modules.
