I guess the problem is that "packaging with" is a bit blurry.

What are we talking about? What a about a RH CD which
comes with Mozilla, which is under MPL. Does all packages
on the CD have to be under MPL?

I personally don't think downloading-on-demand is
really that bad at all. (If done nicely!) But let's wait
what the board comes up with. It may or may not expose
this discussion being a waste of time ;)
