I think that it is an important clarification to make.

Thanks to this clarification, I would like to recommend that, in case the
OSI has already discussed a license, this work is taken into account
when making a review on debian-legal.  The OSI has recently opened
public mailing lists and a bug tracker, that will help a lot to avoid
duplicating work when it is descriptive or comparative.
