one definition is that software (BSD) is what computers read,
and documents (CC) are what humans read.  But then what
is data, like a stream of RDF?

it may be more productive to write some code to calculate
how many angels we could fit on a pin head than debate this
for ever. The dual-licensing model takes the onus of deciding
off our backs.
