This is a great milestone, as will be the OSI adopting policies for identifying deprecated licenses.

However, I think OSI policies should take into consideration not just the preferences of the original author but of any projects currently using the license. As an example, the ASF thinks that the 2.0 license is "better" than the 1.1 license, but those who don't agree with the 2.0 patent retaliation mechanisms might not agree.
