Text as currently posted on the OSI site reads:

  "We think it is is significant that the original corporate open-source
   the Mozilla Public License, has been dropped by its originating
   in favor of the GPL. It is becoming increasingly clear from this and
other examples 
   that the "middle way" represented by Mozilla and other corporate
open-source licenses
   is not a stable, effective solution even from the point of view of
selfish corporate agents."

This talks about many things, but not specifically NPL.
