I'm not sure it is well-drafted enough to make that distinction
(sublicenseable/not sublicenseable), but it certainly seems reasonable to
err in that direction when setting a category for it.

William implicitly raises a good point: are there other ugly/historical
licenses that are widely used in Apache projects? If so, might be worth
categorizing them, and if necessary, handling any notice and cleanup tasks
all at one go.
