I'm afraid debian-legal is mostly armchair lawyers. If you want to
consult actual lawyers, it would be best to get legal advice from the
SFLC, who we have gotten legal advice from before. Please contact the
Debian Project Leader, he can proxy this question to them.

I think that sounds fine for main, as long it is just a disclaimer and
not a requirement or part of the license..

It would also be great if someone could convince the Univ. of North
Carolina to move that out of their license into a disclaimer, or just
move to a standard license.
