I am having consultations with, among others, the authors of the MPL on 
this. While still not being convinced for a material need for a 
requirement like this to begin with. I will keep the WG posted of the 
outcomes of that (including me potentially just being wrong here).

As far as the more permissive FLOSS licenses such as BSD/MIT/Apache are 
concerned I don't see a problem in this regard.

Lastly, I also have the practical question how the text proposed by 
David Singer can work in case intermediate network equipment inserts a 
DNT signal.
