I don't believe it is appropriate for an IETF BCP to contain
an open-ended dependency on whatever future requirements three
other organizations might publish. That's why it seems
necessary and sufficient that the BCP sets out the goals.

If the trust uses a software license for code that doesn't meet the
requirements in, say, the DFSG, would you consider that a failure?  If
that happens, Debian cannot include such code.

Using the NPOSL3.0 as the software license, which I read Ray's message
to imply was being considered, would be one way to prevent Debian from
using the code.

I would agree that the references should be for a specific version of
the documents, if that is your point.
