It certainly can't go into main, since there's no source.  Could it go
into non-free?  I'm not convinced by this bit:

   under a license agreement that has terms and conditions at least as
   restrictive as those set forth in Exhibit B, (Requirements for End
   User License Agreements)


"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon 
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
