do you really think they gonna treat the freestyle athletes any different?
so, since freestyle skiing is in the olympics and you will need to qualify doing fis events, it is something the community should care about.
to op: this sucks big time, only reason is the profit maximization for fis (they can charge more from their sponsors (sponsors of the world cup) if they can ensure that no other company logos will be around during the events.)
eventually this will lead to a situation where skiers won`t be able to put themselves on the market as individuals. except you`re a self-marketing genius like jon olsson.
