Perhaps I'm misunderstanding.  Perhaps recasting this question into another
context will help me understand.

My understanding is that the MPL version 4 and the GPL version 3 are more
restrictive than the Apache License, Version 2.

My understanding is that the Apache License, Version 2 is widely considered
to be "compatible" with both licenses, in the sense that Apache code may be
incorporated into products that are released under the Mozilla and GPL

Is my understanding wrong?
