There is a difference between having a wiki that has "commercial" 
features (such as ads) and having core wiki software that includes a 
tie-in to a commercial entity (in this case, Google).

In the case of the commercial wiki, it probably does not matter to 
the admin whether the commercial components are part of the core or 
are add-ons.

In the case of a wiki that is trying to remain free of commercial 
tie-ins (for whatever reasons), having such a tie-in built into the 
core software makes it an unusable solution.
