It's a much stronger justification if the usage hits the level of the
least-frequently-used license family already in common-licenses, which at
the moment puts the bar around 850 packages. Among the things that could
change that to move the bar lower would be use as the license of very
widely-installed packages. So, for instance, if the license of perl-base
were ever changed to be the Artistic 2.0 license, I think you should
propose again at that time to include it.
