For those of you who don't kno me: I'm a member of the board of OSI.
Speaking for myself, not on behalf of OSI: Yes, this part of the APSL
needs to change. We're working with Apple on APSL mods, and the export
limit provision is already on the agenda.
Unfortunately, Apple _is_ a large corporation; I don't expect to see
changes in the APSL quickly. It'll take a few months at least before
APSL 1.1 (or 2.0? :-)) is released.
