Back in 2008 when the JED decided to make GPL a requirement to be listed, part of the rule included that in order to be listed, a developer could not distribute non-GPL Joomla extensions from the same site he/she wanted to distribute listed extensions from. At the same time, it was decided that it wouldn't be enforced retroactively for existing listings until some point in the future so developers had time to adjust.
To summarize, the grandfathering of listings that distribute non-GPL Joomla extensions from the same site will end Jan 1, 2013.
