There is no license issue here. It's only definitions.
So it seems that in your opinion
- definition names in the interface do not need a license
- it is fair to reuse them without a license for the purpose
   of making your compatible interface easier to use for
   people familiar with the original

Did I get that right?
I'm for sure not an expert on open source code licenses. You probably know this area much more than I do. But yes, this is what I would have thought. That it's not an issue to copy the enum definition.

If I'm wrong and it is an issue, is declaring a new enum with new names not a license issue and can be done instead? Or am I only allowed to use hard-coded numbers, point to original code from where I deduced the number, and specify number meaning in comment?
