Only about 10% of IT people are concerned by your licence optimization
scheme (those who work for software editors), the remaining 90% don't
care that much about licencing since they develop, glue, administrate,
deploy, customize software for only one customer, either their employer
or in an out-sourcing setup, or are selling consulting or support.
