I think this is a quite reasonable summary of the situation.  I will
point out that further distributors who wish to distribute AIE and
INVERT will essentially be bound by the GPL with regards to AIE, even
though it is under the MIT/X11 license: they received it under the
terms of the GPL, not under the terms of the X11 license.
