It is considerably less fringe than "Choice of venue is
non-discriminatory because suitable lies allow anybody to sue you
anywhere over anything even with no license and only the cost changes
if you have to defend yourself in the other guy's home court because
of a software license."

As you point out elsewhere, total fabrications can be invented to
support any claim, but DFSG freedom questions should be limited to
what the license imposes on or requires from users.
