Sorry, but there was also an argument below in my message.

The point is that there are possibly a lot of corner cases, such as the 
autotools case, for which we can't really decide and list every single issue 
or produce a general rational.

Since the vast majority of the packages fall into a regular copyright and 
licensing, this would also mean overload the policy with stuff that is only 
relevant in a very small number of cases in proportion.
