To follow up on this message -- Yale contacted Dr. Zaslavsky at about the
same time I sent this message to liblicense, and received a very prompt
and cordial reply indicating that the gathering of comments and concerns
about the license has finished and recommended wording changes are going
to the CIS lawyers today.  Knowing how legal review sometimes operates at
a slightly different timescale, I don't want to speculate how long it will
be before the click-through is actually revised, but did want to share
that the concerns we had on requirements for destruction of copies,
walk-in use on campus, and jurisdiction all seem like they will be

I also want to say that our correspondence with Dr. Zaslavsky has been
delightful from the standpoint of conversing with a gentleman whose
primary focus is the content of the product, but who has been eminently
willing to be educated about license concerns.
