That question has IMHO already been answered, as we host the reference
implementations to various JSRs for which other-licensed implementations
exist. So yes, we can host this, if we define the layer or have the
layer definition under Apache license.

To be clear: I don't want to be a road block here, I just like to have
these questions discussed before incubation begins; nothing is worse
than having Tashi in incubation for a few months, having them started a
community at Apache and then finding out that there are showstoppers
that makes it impossible to continue here. Better get this resolved
before we start.
