I don't see how we can do that unless the Slicer project itself 
separates out the two documents.  Any approval we grant Part B would be 
taken by the general public as also approving Part A.  And the OSI 
already has precedent that we do NOT approve CLAs.

I don't see the issue with Part C, though?  That's just a jurisdiction
