DFSG status of DFARS clause?

[Please Cc: me on replies.]

For the record, does

	All Rights Reserved. RESTRICTED RIGHTS LEGEND: Use,
	duplication, or disclosure by the government is subject
	to restrictions as set forth in subparagraph (c) (1) (ii)
	of the Rights in Technical Data and Computer Software
	Clause at DFARS 252.227-7013 (Oct. 1988) and FAR
	52.227-19(c) (June 1987).

in a license violate the DFSG?

On the one hand, it appears to discriminate against the US government;
on the other hand, it crops up all over the place, including in the
licenses of Tcl and Tk (which are in main).

A search revealed this question to have come up before, but did not
reveal a conclusive answer.
