Personally, I'm not bothered if people put "under the same terms
as otherthing" as we can do a reasonable substitution and I doubt
anyone would have a problem with that, would they?

If they actually put "under the otherthing licence" and
otherthing's licence is specific to a particular author,
then that's probably worth querying.
It leaves us with an irrelevant licence
(like the Ruby one that names files,
or the PHP one that may force a false ad clause).
