Specified jurisdictions are extremely common, and imo do not conflict
with the intent of this contract. They merely provide some legal context
for the contract.

This potentially makes this license easier for the owner to defend if
it should be violated in some way, as the jurisdiction was likely chosen
with the expertise of his own lawyers in mind.

A chosen jurisdiction is no reason not to allow this, though.
