I think that ROOT's license is acceptable for non-free. Whether
it's wise to add it is up to you, the maintainer, and the users. In
particular, if I were considering maintaining such a program, I'd want
to know if I needed a new permission to distribute new version, or if I
could get blanket permision along the lines of "debian may distribute
modified versions of ROOT".
But I'm not.
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
