Any software that replicates APIs (e.g., Dalvik), even if entirely
written from scratch, would have to be offered under the CAL. Is that
your intention?

I do NOT read this license as not having any copyleft effect on software
that simply uses APIs. Is that correct? If my reading is incorrect, can
you walk me through it?
