User story:

Henrik needs to look up (or link to) the Acme Corporation Public
License. He goes to opensource.org, and clicks on "Open Source
Licenses". Since he knows the name of the license he wants to look up,
he clicks on "Licenses by Name". He then presses Ctrl+F to search for
the wanted license within the alphabetical list.

This is pretty much the only way I personally ever look up a license.
