I don't see any indication (which is a requirement of submission <https://opensource.org/licenses/review-process/>) that this was reviewed by a lawyer, and it’s not really clear to me that the other requirements for submission of a new license were met either. I think a lot of the drafting issues here could be addressed by having some sort of legal review on this license (and I don’t think submitting it to the list in the hope that the lawyers on the list will do the legal review ought to count).

This was not submitted to -review, only to -discuss, so those requirements don't apply (yet).
