"These are our rules" would be a bad answer IMO ;-)

The way I see it, the ASF funding development would create advantages
for companies which depend on funded projects, which is incompatible
with our charity status.

Strict rules might help avoid that but it's probably much easier to
handle funding independently of the ASF, as was done in the example
that I mentioned here earlier.
