Have a GR and attempt to convince the developer population at large that
the license is non-free. Given that the DFSG were written specifically
to ensure that it was free, that'll be awkward.

In practical terms, given the age of the licenses concerned, it's hard
to say that there's a flaw in one of them that prevents people from
being able to exercise their freedoms to a sufficient degree.
