Why there is no OSS and non-OSS notice in pkgsrc packages?

" I'm sorry ", if this is not appropriate request but...

I do wonder why there is no variable (ie; ACCAPTABLE_SOURCE=non-OSS) or a
subcategory, a notice stating that a pkgrsc software is OSS (Open Source
Software) or non-OSS. Is this something not-compatible with NetBSD look?

I see similar categorization exists in some of linux distros too, ie;
open-suse yast and ubuntu apt-get. I do love to use NetBSD but every time i
want to adda new software, i need to check package format and its contents
(o am i missing something?).

Thank you in advance.
