I should point out that without Broadcom buying into the project, there would be no RPi. You fancy paying £80 for a Beagleboard? No, me neither. As I understand it, they"re supplying the SOC far cheaper than normal, and this indicates to me they support the Foundation"s mission statement.
Which brings me right back to the original topic...
You are right that without Broadcom's involvement this project probably wouldn't exist, at least, not yet. It's not just the chip price, but the tech support behind it, which is at a much higher level than most people realise.
