I acknowledge that potential for infinite regress.  But that potential
is merely theoretical.  The fact that a JCP spec lead has attempted to
provide us with an unacceptable license is not theoretical, and
requesting actual licenses (as opposed to statements of intent)
earlier in the process is a prudent response to this situation.

It is a license.  We have seen it.  Unless somebody identifies a
specific concern with that specific license, yes.

I will also note that having the spec lead directly participate in the
open discussion and respond so quickly is a great precedent to have at
this time.
