Revised versions of the OSL and AFL

I like the revised AFL. It's getting to the point where I may even use it.
I have just one concern, and that is with the warranty of copyright which
appears in both of these licenses. I think there must be a better way to
achieve that - it smells like a cludge to me - but since I'm not a lawyer I
won't venture any ideas.
It would be very helpful for me (and I assume for some others) to see some
public discussion of how / whether this warranty would work in practice.
If a discussion like that happens here, I promise to stay out of it!
