I'm not quite sure what point you're trying to make here. Are you
suggesting that DFSG 10 is unfortunate because of the specific licenses
it chooses (ie, it seems to endorse licenses that are free but
non-optimal), or because it results in us considering the Artistic and
4-clause BSD licenses free?
