Indeed, I mean something much simpler. Just a page that lists questions  

"Can I still use Apache OpenOffice for free in any environment (school,  
home, office)? Yes you can."
"Can I still copy Apache OpenOffice and install it on my  
daughter's/parents'/colleagues' PCs? Yes you can."
"Can I still distribute a copy of Apache OpenOffice? Yes you can and you  
are even freer. Read more [link]."

It should be a "FAQ for the average Joe", absolutely no legalese involved,  
unless a distributer wants more info about brands, names and so on.
