Perfect, I invite you to participate on the discussion, as I posted the
ideas in a new thread (following advice from Stefano and Alessandro).
Could you also tell the staffers you know to post their opinions?

Well, I think I already contacted them via this email, but I was replied
by only one person (which turns out to belong to one of the "reluctant"
groups I talk about in the new thread) and I think this needs to be
discussed in a global way like a mailing list.

As far as I understand, OSI is more oriented to less-restrictive open
source licenses, right? Then I guess they wouldn't be very interested.
