I agree. I was talking about clause 2 of the OSL, which includes
"Licensor grants You a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive,
sublicensable license, under patent claims owned or controlled [...]."
Your assessment of clause 1.8 (definition of Licensable) of CDDL, which
includes "having the right to grant, to the maximum extent possible"
