    I have one concern, and that is the fact that it currently includes
    reference documentation that was taken from the IBM APL2 documentation. I
    have a license to use this from IBM, but the license is only for this
    specific project, which obviously is incompatible with the Emacs license.

Are you planning to include a manual for APL in GNU Emacs?
I don't think that makes sense.  We don't include a C manual in Emacs.

I think it is better to distribute APL documentation separately.

_How_ does IBM permit you to use that material?  Are you distributing
it under a free license?  What license does IBM say you can or must use?
