Free as in no cost.  It is has an Adobe license, just like FlashPlayer and

We're not including it, we are making it a prerequisite.  And we intend it
to be used with Adobe Flash Player and Adobe AIR.

We could remove them (there aren't too many) but I think it would likely
break some effects.  It depends on who is using them.  The spark wipe
effects use them, but I don't know for sure why.  I don't know if folks are
using the mx shader classes, but they also use pbj files.
