Josh, when you say 'possibly amend the OSD', do you mean amend the OSD
to clarify that something can be an open source license if it allows
such license-stripping, or amending the OSD to clarify that open
source licenses must be minimally restrictive so as to prohibit
downstream license-stripping? (Or do you mean possibly one or the
other pending such recommended taking-up in a larger venue?)
