Because you are so intimately familiar with the licenses and know every 
feature and blemish, so you seek the perfect when maybe we should only 
aspire to the better-than-nothing. Maybe not; I read your slides and 
take your point that "nothing" isn't really all that scary. But I'm 
having a little difficulty reconciling the concepts that a narrower 
choice of tested licenses is better (i.e., license proliferation is bad) 
but we're not going to help you understand how these licenses work so 
you can make a better-informed, albeit perhaps not perfect, choice.
