Just to be clear, this is a better version of the currently-approved license (least of which, because it is reusable), and given the changes are non-legally substantive, I think this request should be approved promptly, and the 2.0 version put into the list of superseded but approved licenses. I'm suggesting, however, that because the new license is reusable, a better category for it would be "Licenses that are redundant with more popular licenses" since this looks to be a variant of BSD-3.
