For what it's worth... Larry Rosen is not the only one to be "unhappy" 
or "surprised" by this work on license proliferation (at least from a 
legal point of view and especially from someone on the other side of the 
Atlantic Ocean). I think he raised good points that you did not answer. 
Moreover, I'm also suprised by the tone of your response that sounds not 
very "neutral" to me. I understand that you know Larry probably well but 
from the outside it is not the kind of answer one expects from a member 
of the OSI board on a public mailing list.
