I don't think anyone really lays claim to test data. That would be kind of 
silly. As a matter of courtesy, though, when we use data from somewhere else, 
we try to acknowledge the source in the source code. Often, test data comes
from examples in the questions people ask on mailing lists.

I spoke with Uche Ogbuji about it and he said:

" I'm happy to grant fellow OSS developers alternative license grants.
  So I'd say we offer him, specifically, an LGPL license for use in his 
  project. "

So there you go. For details you can write him at uche -at- ogbuji.net or
chat on irc.freenode.net channel #4suite.
