I agree with Nigel that it would be desirable for the Open Source
community for licenses to be merged if such is possible. License
proliferation and the need to make legal decisions regarding a large
number of license combinations is a continuing and increasing problem
for us. It would be nice if you could ask NASA.
This is really a patent license, as I don't see that any other
significant rights are being granted. If there aren't any patents
granted, I can't see that there is any reason for anyone to accept the
license, and there's no consideration in either direction.
Thus, it would make sense for you to list the patents you know about.
