Not true. I have an opinion about this, but I need a wizard program  
because my licensing needs vary, and because new licenses may be better  
than the old ones I am familiar with. I may also be interested in what-if  
analysis: investigating how a change in my opinion would affect the list  
of OSI-recommended licenses.

On the other hand, the above was just an example -- OSI will determine  
what questions are worth asking.
