i find it really hard to know which hat people are wearing these days. 
for example, is this -1 with your member hat on (in which case there's 
no real point continuing this vote) or just as a jakarta committer?

IIRC though there the reason for adding it came from the board, the 
interpretation (putting the license on javadocs) came from discussions 
with brian. if it's something that needs to be decided at board level 
then the right thing seems to be raising this on the jakarta pmc list.
