Not me alone. The license has to be submitted according to the steps
given in http://opensource.org/docs/certification_mark.html#approval,
approved by license-discuss (John's comments are obviously helpful
there), and presented to the OSI board for a vote.
If all you've ever done is talk about your license on license-discuss,
it will never be approved. Not through any animosity, simply because
everyone on the OSI board is a busy person. We need the structure of
the approval process to make sure that licenses don't get lost.
