Suggested by whom? It's clearly DFSG-free - if we wanted to, we could
distribute it under the LGPL. I'm not sure that taking a DFSG-free license
and adding permissions would ever get you a non-DFSG-free license.

If you are refering to the comment in incoming.debian.org/REJECT, the
issue seems to be that you only included the summary in .../doc/wx*/copyright
and put the license in .../doc/wx*/license.txt. less /usr/share/doc/*/copyright
has the actual license in the copyright file whenever it's not LGPL or GPL.
