The first part of this sentence appears to limit its own application to a "portion of the software", while the second part implies that a portion of the software (perhaps all of it?), if it is compiled, is not restricted to being licensed under the MSPL.  What is the intention here?

Compliance with a license is something I think of as a person - rather than a license - doing.  Could you give some examples of what it means in practice for a license to "compl[y] with this license?"
