As long as the "proprietary notices" are reasonable, I think the software
probably follows the DFSG and could be uploaded to main.

But IIRC, Amazon have been software patenters - is the "waive any claim 
[...] your use" stuff an indication there are active patents around this?
Amazon trying to hinder defensive counterclaims?  I'm suspicious because
copyright licences don't often state that quite so strongly.
