I asked that on d-legal recently (in response to the seventieth "license
texts are unmodifiable, so we should give up and allow everything to be!"-
esque argument, if I remember correctly), and Jacobo Tarrio started work
on a FAQ. I havn't looked at it much yet; my impression is that it's too

in the course of discussions, and extracting those is probably the best
bet--except that the particularly well-thought-out responses are buried
among a couple thousand other mails ...
