Saxon itself is the culprit, being MPL 1.0 which is considered 
"incompatible" with the ASL. And Michael Kay isn't capable on his own 
to change the license since Saxon bears copyright from both Mike and 
his former employer ICL, which seems to be unreachable for this matter.

AElfred itself seems to be OK though, because it comes with an 
LGPL-style license with an extra clause about linking (which was the 
main problem between LGPL & ASL).

IANAL so please chime in with remarks.
