Perhaps if the ARL OSL were to be published, or if a new version of
the Apache License were to incorporate the relevant suggestions, one
constituency within the US government might be satisfied. But there
are bound to be other constituencies and other lawyers who disagree
with the analysis and who would argue, just as vehemently as we have
seen here, that a different solution is required.
