So there are authors with two different interests. Maybe you should add also
an example how to declare The Programm to be lppl but not allow change of
maintainer, something like:

    %% Copyright 2001 M. Y. Name
    % This program may be distributed and/or modified under the
    % conditions of the LaTeX Project Public License, either version 1.3
    % of this license or (at your option) any later version, but maintainer
    % may not change without asking the current maintainer.
    % The latest version of this license is in
    % and version 1.3 or later is part of all distributions of LaTeX
    % version 2002/06/01 or later.
    % This program consists of the files pig.dtx and pig.ins
    % and the derived file pig.sty.

And I think, you should tell about the new conditions at the LaTeX news.
