I don't know.  IANAL and all that good stuff.  When I read some  
things, it's not obvious to me, and I've had a some discussions with  
people that make me even more unsure :-)

At any rate, I was just proposing something that is more "graphically  
optimal", to paraphrase your terms.  Something that is unambiguous in  
it's usage terms (because we explicitly say "use this", versus, "we're  
not sure if you can") and helps spread the Lucene brand, I guess.   A  
powered-by logo would make it clear, in my mind, but I'm fine w/o it
