If you could keep the context of the email you are responding to, 
including the original subject line, that would be very helpful.

No, no OSI license includes an optional provision that does not comply 
with the OSD. Every possible variation of the license must meet the OSD 
and you have several options that do not.

I believe someone else has also mentioned that there shouldn't be a 
single license with variations. That defeats one of the benefits of open 
source licenses, which is that one knows what the requirements of the 
license are without having to read it each time. If you want to create 
variations, they should be separate licenses with different 
distinguishing names.
