Further background on the (explicitly narrow!) approval of that
specific request from the AOO PMC:

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-117

If you follow the links you will find:

https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=65039#c16

I'll note that this is not an example of an inflexible and frozen
policy, nor is it an example of a PMC actively looking for ways to
circumvent the provisions of the license choice under which the
authors of the work was made available.

In fact, this is a prime example of how I think things should work.
