Is there consensus that DFSG#10 really is a grandfather clause?  I've seen
this interpretation offered a number of times, but I've never seen any
strong agreement to it.  I find the interpretation hard to buy, personally,
given that it's presented as "examples"; I'd sooner read a conflict
between DFSG#10 and other clauses as a simple inconsistency that needs
repair, though that may be less convenient.
