I see that you _continue_ declining to address the subject at hand.
Which is evaluating whether specific licences are OSD-compliant or not.
Instead, you digress onto business models, alleged deficiencies in the
OSD, and a whole circus of diversions.

Farewell!  I sincerely hope that your employer has the good sense to
forebear from referring to software under that licence as "open source",
or it will have a serious public-relations problem.

For it is _very_ obvious that, in fact, you do not intend to produce 
open-source software, and never did.  Good luck to you.
