Are you saying this _after_ reading Barbara Beeton's comments?

BTW a number of licenses are accepted by and in use at CTAN.

I think that LaTeX project needs in the matter of software components
for tex, the program, and its cousins _are_ more complicated than
those for ordinary programs.  Note, that GNU provides a variant
license for libraries than for applications.  Don't we have a
different type of object here?
