Richard is working with the FSF stuff on this, but AFAIU the response
cannot be a binary YES/NO result, it must be able to return a 3rd
value, meaning "human investigation is required".  I don't know if you
ever saw the copyright list, but some entries there are not very
trivial for a program to process, since they include various
conditions that are written in free-text format which would not be
simple for a program to parse and apply.
