Hi all,
the SIL Open Font License is considered to be a special purpose Free
Software License (on the FSF list) for fonts. Due to the special nature,
it differs from GPL and BSD license in a number of areas, one critical
difference being that selling the font alone is prohibited. It is
permitted to sell aggregated work containing such a font though.

I don't think this warrants any NO_*_ON_* and I don't think it warrants
requiring special acceptance, so I would like to add it to the default
list of acceptable licenses.
