These are early days, and L0's public licenses are changing
with feedback.  All the same, I'd be very surprised to see
L0 code anywhere but Cat X.

The current draft of the noncommercial license has a
built-in, automatic waiver that reverts the public terms to
BSD-2-Clause.  Apache may someday see a request to use
formerly L0 software transitioned under that mechanism.  But
that's both hypothetical and far off.  I completely agree it
makes no sense for AF to entertain now.
