My understanding is that OSI's licence approval process
(http://www.opensource.org/docs/certification_mark.html) is specifically
for _software_ licences.  That scope limitation came up previously when
people proposed documentation licences for certification; I suspect the
same logic applies here.

(I don't speak for OSI, however.)
