"Commercial rights reserved" does not mean the same thing as "noncommercial". Noncommercial includes the concept that a work is meant to be primarily or entirely outside of the commercial realm rather than the creator reserving commercial rights. 

Some of us would like to broaden the part of our world that is not thought of in commercial terms - including many instances where people are paid for their work.
