yes, after some though, i see the informational value in
distinguishing them

the problem is: if A4.1 is not satisfied, then the code-base, as
a whole, is not distributable at all

even if A4.1 is satisfied, it is still possible (perhaps quite
likely) that the code-base, as a whole, is not commercially

either scenario makes the passing A4 deceptive and moot - so,
even if A4 and A4.1 are each significant and coherent together,
the combination is likely to be misleading
