I don't think that the name of the file is important, so long as the
license has the same name. Since the Novell Developer License
Agreement applies here:

-The SDK is definitely nonfree, so it must be removed from main
-For the reason that you mentioned in your first email
(non-transferable licence), it seems that it can't even be put into
non-free unless Debian expressly gets permission to grant others
permission to use the software under this license.
