Ian, your timing sucks.  =>  Not that I don't agree with you.

On the whole, it's very long and wordy to say just a few things.  I can
understand the need to do that, but.  Things like allowing reverse-

source.

The DFSG should be easy to figure out, the licenses are what should require
interpretting.
