Thanks for raising this point!  I have questions with Clause 6 too.  Does
"No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor" means that a license cannot
restrict someone from using the program in immoral/illegal/criminal
activities?  For example, I definitely would not want anyone using Free
Software/Open Source Software to make nuclear or biochemical weapons, 
to kill people, to commit fraud, etc.
