I guess it would need to check licenses of all the libs the validator 
uses and include them (the licenses) in some way. But AFAIK that's the 
only reason.
BTW, an issue with the jar we provide for download is that it doesn't 
have the necessary libs and I don't remember seeing the list of 
necessary libs in the doc. Perhaps it may be worth adding it somewhere 
in the doc. The problem is that it becomes way more painful to download 
the jar if you have to also download and extract a bunch of other files 
rather than doing a CVS checkout followed by ant jar which would then 
download all the libs... But then we assume that everyone interested in 
the CSS Validator has cvs and ant installed... Don't know what's best... 
I guess we can add links to the libs, that doesn't cost much.

Thoughts?
