To point out the difference?

Maybe we should rename the page to "similar projects" because "related" 
seems to suggest that we have some sort of working relationship (i.e. 
OSMF board members being invited to VIP dinners and such ;)

I would have no problem with a "similar projects" page that maybe has 
two sub-sections, "other open projects" and "proprietary products" or so.

It doesn't even have to be as placative as 
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Google_map_maker ;)
