Thanks for submitting these!  OSI has not previously approved content 
licenses.  You'll note that, for example, the Creative Commons licenses 
are not certified by the OSI.  That doesn't mean that we might not do it 
in the future, just that it would be an organizational policy change and 
therefore not a routine license approval.

For my sake, and for the record, can you explain what the Mulan OWL 
licenses offer that's not covered by Creative Commons licenses?  Are 
they just more compatible with Chinese law, or is there something else 
as well?
