As another note for those interested ...

My product in question is actually two main products, one of which is 
dependent on the other, in the form of a software stack.

The lower part of the stack is fully open source already, and has been 
released that way over the last 2 years; this is the portion that 
implements cross-database portability, and it is very useful all by 
itself.  My program prototype is written in Perl and so is this; see CPAN 
for "Rosetta" and "SQL::Routine" and related modules; they are released 
GPL plus exception.

The license I was describing here would only refer to my "added value" 
which is the upper part of the stack.

So my efforts are at least half OSI compliant already.
