First, you don't have to thank every time. Really. The work of yours  
and DAC and Sutton Centre and others is very bigger and more important  
by creating de IMWA versions and spreading the word :)

Absolutely, yes!

Yes! My only point by putting distribution licenses is to guarantee  
that everyone can use it freely. Not necessarily for free, but with  

In a world filled with licenses and patents imposing restrictions on  
how people use their intelligence, we have to, unfortunately, use the  
same mechanisms to guarantee people's freedom.

I'm not taking long time of you guys here. If anyone that is not used  
with freedom of software pieces as defined by Free Software Foundation  
Licenses or Creative Commons Licenses, feel free to contact-me and  
I'll be pleased in give directions.
