I would vote not to reposit (if that is indeed a word) proprietary

We can list proprietary extensions perhaps on a separate page. This
would still offer our users a full complement of extensions for
LibreOffice. The owners of the proprietary extensions can take care of
storing their own extensions and updates, which they normally do anyway.

I would personally avoid to mention proprietary software and add ons of any kind on our website.

I'd like to see "proprietary" retained as an option which, when clicked, takes the visitor to a page stating that:

========= begin sample text
The following add-ons are licensed as proprietary. They may cost no money but, neither are they licensed as Free / Open Source Software. These links are supplied by their developers and are provided here as a convenience to LibreOffice users.

Do you know of a F/OSS alternative for any of these?  Let us know!
========= end sample text

The reason I say this is that non-free software is not anathema to F/OSS.
