Thanks Even. Noted.

As you likely know. It is the extra nature beyond other reciprocal licenses like LGPL, EPL, and MPL that is the concern. I've not heard a different term to describe that aspect. And it goes without saying no offense was intended. I understand the different perspectives and see them as an important choice to fit the project's goals.

Kind regards,
