In all cases, the "superseded" licenses have been superseded by
later versions from the same source.  They are the APSL 1.0, CPL 1.0,
Artistic 1.0, Eiffel Forum 1.0, Plan 9, MPL 1.0 and 1.1, OSL 1.0, and
the Reciprocal PL 1.0.

Likewise, the "retired" licenses have been abandoned by their stewards:
they are the Intel Open SL, the Jabber Open SL, the Mitre CVW, and
the SISSL.

None of these have a place on the main list$, and do not appear on Karl's
draft list either.
