[License-discuss] Certifying MIT-0

Is that para. 2 language so clearly a license?  Without the verb "grant" it could be read as a statement of how the "licensor" views the effect of the dedication in para. 3.   Separately, if the rights have been effectively dedicated to the public domain, there are no more rights to grant by action of para. 3.
