Could you please ask them to review everything and making it all as
specific and clear as possible? (i know that this is kinda the opposite
of what people usually try to do in legal documents like contracts,
EULAs etc, but it would really benefit the community to have things
spelled out to the last character, knowing what is and what isn't
allowed without doubts and without fear that things could be interpreted
differently by LL or some laywers or somthing would make developers and
users much happier)
