   What matters is the intent of the authors in the end, and that note
   makes it clear.

What matters is the law and the license.  The intent is irrelevant.
If the law and the license allows me to do something, it doesn't
matter how much the copyright holder claims that his intent was
something else.

(Sorry for the double answer, I forgot about this part)
