Is the OpenMap license Open Source?

I hope this is the right place to ask this question.
At http://www.openmap.org/ it is claimed that
the OpenMap(TM) package is Open Source. Wandering
over to www.opensource.org I find this claim no
longer means what it used to, and that it doesn't
mean that much if it doesn't say 'OSI Certified'.
I was wondering if OpenMap's license
was being considered by OSI for certification?
In particular I'm not sure what some clauses entail
(such as clauses 3 and 9) and whether there is
anything that's in this license that would be
an impediment to OSI certification?
Such certification would give me the peace-of-mind
that it is worth creating derivative works of
software under this license.
Thanks for any help,
