Of BSD? Sure. Of CDDL? Huh?

I'd very much like to be able to include CDDL source into NetBSD, but as 
it stands, I just don't see how this should happen. So far the only 
arguments claiming this is possible seem to ignore the implications a 
possible inclusion of CDDL code into (Net)BSD has, and which I think are 
not acceptable to NetBSD. Unfortunately.

Fingerpointing at some FAQ that claims something while the license is in 
rather clear contradiction won't solve this.
