Let's not use ND, whatever is wrong with the LGPL?

That would break the TEI-C treasury :-) But yeah, possibly Sebastian
suggested ND for generated schemas on the assumption that the
corresponding ODDs will be open to modifications, but I'm not sure if
legal constraints should be use to enforce infrastructural/theoretical
directives, as it were. If someone chooses to modify and distribute a
generated schema, well, let them, why should we care... They have to
describe it as modified anyway, if they choose to distribute, so there
is no danger of bad credit going back to the TEI.
