I don't see a problem in that.

In any case I think we should always focus first on the technical parts
and maybe later on the license issues.  So if something is brilliant but
has a strange license, we shouldn't shoot it down because of the license
but first comment on the technical content.  After that we can issue
possible legal concerns.
