Hi, Jonathan-

We had had some discussions about the license for test suites recently, 
and I brought up the issue on the Interaction Domain telcon.  PLH 
(Philippe Le Hegeret) said that David Baron was involved in the 
discussion last year, and that he was satisfied with the new test suite 
licenses [1].

If these still don't suit you, we can have a further discussion about 
it.  It would probably be most productive if you were to write up your 
objections and proposal, in that case.

If these new licenses do satisfy your needs, I propose that the SVG WG 
adopt the new, more permissive BSD license [2].
