That was my point.  Unless we find out that Saxon has some unfriendly
dependencies, the question of whether a binary dependency in the package
was compiled from sources or not or whether the Installer should ask about
MPL and MIT dependencies probably doesn't put the foundation at risk, so
the worst case is you hit send on the announcement and we hear back at
that moment that there is a rule like that and we have start in on fixing
that, but I would be surprised if we have to pull it back.
