The Athena Widgets are *very* much public domain and are a part of
the basic X11 distribution. But they tend to be poorly supported,
only designed as an example widget set and not mainstream usage.
Biggest problem, a lot of X11 installation, notably Sun, did not
include these widgets with their version of X11.
My Xzoom program, part of the MAPGEN distribution, uses them.
But they *are* public domain as much as X11.
