How do you form a contract without presenting the terms?  Is there a 
way to review the terms without clicking? Is such vague language
sufficient to incorporate all the terms (of those possibly 800 
licenses) by reference?   Seems against common sense to me.

Further, any consciencious, thinking user would never click to agree
to something like that.  I know I wouldn't.  It is just too unpalatable.

I would want to agree individually, not in bulk.
