It would be good to fix the documentation (in mk/; apgl-v3 is
certainly Free, and changing the name is contrary to the previously
documented rule that Free/Open-Source licenses.

Actually, I (mildly) object to the change you just made; the -license
suffix rule for being Free or Open Source was very straighforward.  I am
not objecting to board's call that it not be in the default; the point
of the default is that people not be unreasonably surprised.  But if the
new name stands, please fix the documentation to explain that licenses
get a -license suffix if they are non-Free/Open or are on a special list
of license that board finds likely to be problematic even for people who
generally find Open/Free licenses ok.
