Interesting points as always. I personally would prefer a single line to work
to. Cleaner, less confusing. But if that is the framework we have then we
should either work within that framework or re-define the framework.

I suppose we could go nuts and create your-artistic-freedom that blacklist all
things with non 4 freedoms type art assets. Thus people who care could install
artistic-freedom and people more in line with the FSDG could not install.. and
then everyone is happy except the maintainer of your-artistic-freedom.
