I may have been unclear.  It is my understanding that one could take a
product released under the Apache License, Version 2.0, incorporate it into
a product, and release the result under the terms of GPL v3.  I believe
that a similar statement can be made concerning MPL v2.  And for various
proprietary licenses.

All one needs to do is to comply with the terms of the Apache License, none
of which preclude you from doing the above.

What am I missing?
