I (and not only I) consider DFSG#10 to be a mistake.  (From my understanding,
it was never even intended to be an actual clause of the DFSG.)  Listing the
Artistic license is just as bad.  Maybe, at the very least, someone will
propose a GR to change it to "3-clause BSD" and "clarified Artistic", but
I'm not holding my breath.
