in answer to your subject line, one crucial issue is a clear free
licence.  it seems that we (ctan) didn't believe your first upload
satisfied that.

in the upload of 2011-11-01, we found a clear statement of the licence,
but that's only two days ago, so one might expect it to appear in tl
some time soon.

as for miktex (in answer to the body of the message), i can't say.
miktex asks for a clear licence statement, too, but miktex accepts
things that tex live avoids -- i don't really understand what the policy
is.  if you want a definitive statement about miktex, perhaps a mail to
the miktex-users list (https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/miktex-users)
might help?
