Ah, thanks; it's always good to get the false accusations straight from
the horse's mouth.

By the way,

Message-ID: <20011202075756.GD26052@deadbeast.net>
"Whether certain language is legally binding or not is always a
determination that will have to be made by a human."

Message-ID: <20011203044436.GB30855@deadbeast.net>
"See how much invariant text there is.  If there's more than
a certain amount, decide whether you still think the package should be
in the Debian GNU/Linux Distribution, and if so, raise the issue on
debian-legal so that the judgement of several people can applied."

These types of judgements in the first case demand a degree of
specialized knowledge, and in the second case a value judgement on the
part of the prospective package maintainer.  Thus I think my proposal is
expecting both informed and prudent decisions on the part of package
maintainers.

Let me know if that's setting the bar too high.
