For the letter, that's true. But UC and other state universities are
writing proposals for HAVA funding, and it's best if the proposals
include the license model for the *state universities* to use.
Otherwise there may be negotiations of licensing controlled by dozens
of technology licensing officials who don't "get it." If it's in the
proposal, that's a legal contract of how the software will have to be
licensed.

Best regards,
Arthur
