Is it your intention to allow/encourage people to use specific TERMS
(bits of) your license in their own licenses? I think as we discussed
off-list commonality of terms between licenses would be useful even if
they don't all end up with a common ancestor. For instance, if OSL 3.0
came out now with these terms in, would you encourage OVPL folk to adopt
the "External Deployment" language rather than roll their own? If this
is the intent, the above could perhaps be phrased a little wider.
