I did not realize that my emphasis on the term 'license' in a past
discussion would come to this.

Personally, I do not know what the ramifications will be whether the
NRPM is changed or it isn't.

'License' is not a word that I like much, but because IANAL, I don't

want to be assured that the removal of the term will be in the best
long-term interest of the community from legal, economical, practical,
and 'fair' standpoints.

Because I don't know of any other method to do this, I formally request
that if Proposal 108 does not succeed, I want my Suggestion 2010.3
eradicated along with it, as to eliminate any discrepancies.

I request that this term be removed/replaced as necessary, if necessary
