here they are:

of course left with no well-grounded substantiations or explanations it is 
other way around [1]:

I also think this breaches the Debian Social Contract#4, since you expose your 
users on baseless charges of license violation for no good reasons all over 
the world. Breaks "We will place their interests first in our priorities."

These two make it dangerous and even worse than plain nonfree clear-worded 
license IMHO.

[1] claiming that Debian has already accepted cddl by having cddl'ed star is 
weak arg because it easily could be clasified as bug.
