In general, I'd support this.  Further, joss@debian's implementation
included at X.org is not subject to the other holder's copyright, so
I'd report the bogus CC-NC-ND layout claim as a bug to X.org.

Has that happened?  This thread hinted at previous discussions at
X.org, but I haven't found it yet - where was it?
