Doesn't feel like an objection, really.  We'd approve it because someone 
asked.  If there are others, someone else can ask.

I don't think we need to launch a legacy license project where we search 
out old licenses that might meet legacy OSS standards.  My judgement is: 
if nobody cared enough to send L-R an email, then probably nobody cares 
whether the license is OSS or not.
