This applies for docs generated out of a package but not e.g. for RFCs
(see the doc-rfc-* problem) and Books like selfhtml. My intention was to
set up guidelines for requirements for these type of docs. Current DFSG
talkes about GPL, BSD and Artistic licenses, what about the Open
Publication License, Free Documentation License,...?
