The Debain association is not in any way perceived as a an embedded
systems competitor to Cygnus.

The definition of Embedded_Systems_Software_Company in the license
refers to Embedded_Systems_Development_Software which is defined as:

       Software ... ***primarily intended*** to be used to develop
       software intended to run on Embedded_Systems.

The software produced by the Debain Association is not
"primarily intended" for use in embedded systems.  The Debain
association is not intended to be the target of the restrictions.
I think this should be obvious, but if not, and if it would be
useful to you, Cygnus could probably sign something stating this.
I am not sure this would help though, because as I understand it
you require any license be non-discriminatory, and you might still
view this license as being discriminatory.
