Sure. I think most of us would agree that an unequivocally proper
phrasing of such a construction is to rewrite the entire license.
There may be less strenuous proper phrasings, but I can't think of one
that addresses all of my concerns.

I think that's something that we will have to broach for each license
that we discuss, until we get a good feel for it. I'd gather that most
of us agree with additions that grant permisions, but a few of us are
wary of additions that add restrictions. [I think some of the
discussion regarding mplayer bears this out.]
