If this is true, I have a slightly cosmetic comment:

GPL and LGPL get an "or later" clause while other licenses would have to
jump through the dual license hoops to achieve the same thing.  Perhaps
it would be better to define an "operator" to mean or later?

(And I nominate "+=" as the most logical and ugliest operator for the
job :-)
