The w3c-markup-validator package contains a copy of the "ISO-HTML" DTD 
in /usr/share/sgml/w3c-markup-validator/ISO-HTML/15445.dtd which contains:

     Copyright (C) 2000, IETF, W3C (MIT, Inria, Keio), ISO/IEC.
               All Rights Reserved.

     Permission to copy in any form is granted for use with
     validating and conforming systems and applications as defined
     in ISO/IEC 15445:2000, provided this copyright notice is included
     with all copies.

Is the "for use with ..." part a problem wrt. inclusion in Fedora?  The 
definitions of validating and conforming systems are documented at 

If it is a problem, is evicting the file from binary packages enough, or 
should it be removed from inside source rpms too?
