It could also means that someone setting _ACCEPTABLE, which is still the
standard for bulk builds, is violating the license.

That's what I want to see sorting out, either with an explicit request
to the Open Group or from a lawyer. If the answer is "Yes, you can use
it for personal use, as long as you don't redistribute binaries" or
something along that line, this change is fine. Otherwise, I strongly
object it and want to move to ONLY_FOR_PLATFORM.
