I figured it was different enough from the BSD to be on there. Thanks for
the input.

Remember, though, you can not call it OSI-certified unless it is
approved (upon which it will be added to the site).

If you really want to seek approval for it, carefully follow the
instructions at
http://opensource.org/docs/certification_mark.php#approval and it will
be considered.
