I've ITPed IPAfont as otf-ipafont package.
You can see its license at http://www.opensource.org/licenses/ipafont.html
Please give me your feedback (Please add CC to me). Thanks.
The only things that looks suspicious are the name change clauses.
For derived works:
No one may use or include the name of the Licensed Program as a
program name, font name or file name of the Derived Program.
And for redistribution without modification:
The Recipient may not change the name of the Licensed Program.
I've read Dmitrjs response, and it seems to me this should be covered by
a trademark licence. Explicitly split the copyright and trademark
grants, and you'll probably be fine.
