pkcs#11 license


is this clause a problem?
 * Copyright (C) 1994-1999 RSA Security Inc. Licence to copy this document
 * is granted provided that it is identified as "RSA Security In.c Public-Key
 * Cryptography Standards (PKCS)" in all material mentioning or referencing
 * this document.

this is a from a header file for the pkcs#11 API standard.
the original license for those header files was already
discussed in the "Question about RSA license" thread.
But somehow mozilla managed to get header files under LGPL/MPL/GPL
license, except for above addition.

I wonder: does this restriction cause any problem regarding DFSG compilance?
Does it cause incompatibilities with GPL'ed applications?

Also: do you think we should contact rsa labs and ask about dropping that
restriction? I guess it is similar to the bsd advertising clause.

Thanks for your review.
