Hmm.. Being an OSS/FSF enthusiast myself, I'm not sure if the last
requirement, about code re-use, is a strict requirement. Sure, it
would be nice if there wasn't such a thing, but it would seem to be
better to get the first two points and fail at the third than get
nothing at all.
Think harder. The problem with area-of-application rules is isomorphic
to the "commercial/noncommercial" problem. The really nasty cases are
near service libraries.
