As a member of Core, I strongly objected to that idea when it was suggested.
Specifically stating in a license that a person or a group of people are
not allowed to use a piece of software, as an integral part of the license,
is directly contrary to the goals of The NetBSD Project, and such a license
would never be allowed in the tree.
