I think your analysis is pretty spot-on. Respect RMS for his contribution to Free Software, but ignore comments on other matters. It's a little like the situation with ESR, who has made huge contributions to Open Source software (think: "The Cathedral and the Bazaar"), but who is also a gun-freak. You may or may not agree with his beliefs on carrying guns, but you don't have to agree with him only because you think he's done a lot for Open Source.
(Of course, ask RMS, and he'll tell you that ESR is Spawn of the Devil, but that's another story.....)
