If it's not legal, or not enforcable, that doesn't make it any less non-
Free.  If it's really known to be unenforcable, then the copyright
holder should be willing to remove it from the license, and prevent the
confusion (and misleading claims).

Personally--speaking for my own particular case--I don't care about
flying around the world; flying from Massachusetts to California is
quite too far.
