Yes, I'd agree with this statement.

On the other hand, it also looks a bit silly (to me) when  
distributions refuse to include the file because of this list, even  
though the peculiar license doesn't really interfere with using it in  
any reasonable way. I don't see that this benefits anyone.

When "free software guidelines" get in the way of sharing useful  
software, I wonder if "freedom" is being defined and interpreted too  
legalistically for our own good.
