Don't apologize!  Take credit.

I notice that somewhere between DFSG and OSD, the heading
was slightly changed:

DFSG: License Must Not Contaminate Other Software

OSD:  License Must Not Restrict    Other Software

I'd call that an improvement.  Granted, not one that answers
all today's questions.  One step at a time.
