Subject Re: "Modified Apache 2.0 License"

Imo it should not call itself Modified Apache 2.0 License. It should not contain the term "Apache"
in the license name at all.

It might use another name and as first sentence explain that it is based on the ALv2 with
exception of section (e).

Just my personal .02 of course.
