Interesting. Why would it be off-charter to discuss changes or
derivatives to the definition and the licenses? That seems to be
limiting the discussion to only issues that appeal to the list

Excellent idea, but talk about it elsewhere.  Create a Yahoo Group and
announce it (once) here.  Discussing the creation of licenses which
intend to violate the Open Source Definition is *definitely* off-charter
for this list.
