It's not a cost, it's a risk.  There are plenty of other risks that we take
when we distribute software, that we consider acceptable.  What makes this 
one unacceptable?

As far as discrimination, it's only a form of discrimination insofar as the
ability to sue discriminates against those for whom defending themselves will
be a financial hardship.  This is a problem with the law, not the license.
