[DJW:]  A licence is just the giving of permission, so
all this is really saying is that the current licence
does not permit theses activities, but notes that the
copyright owners may be prepared to grant alternative
licenses.  They could always grant such licenses, unless
there were a contract to the contrary, or it would 
conflict with a licence applying to material they had used
which was not owned by them, so the fact that
they are willing doesn't seem to change the legal position,
and is therefore purely informative.
