It's true that having your licence not be OSI-certified might be
inconvenient in some situations, but:
- Debian at least does not care whether anything is OSI-certified.
We make our own decisions.
- Getting your licence OSI-certified ought to be feasible I think.
Wanting your licence to be in the native language of the vast
majority of your contributors is a good reason for having a
different licence. IMO.
