I agree. I do not expect OSI configuration of the wizard to cover all
licenses. It should cover all common license *use cases* instead. It
should be oriented to typical license "choosers", not license "scholars".

"Linear" is probably too rigid (and would not be a significant
from coding point of view; it is easy to sort a list of questions).
Otherwise, I agree that grouping licenses in categories would help a lot
when configuring the wizard.
