Even utterly proprietary and closed software can benefiting society. 

And I certainly don't see any problems with availability of sources to 
study code and conveniently exercise right to modify/adapt under 17 
USC 117. It doesn't need a license, it works with all rights reserved.

EPL/CPL is also fine (binaries need not be royalty free) as long as 
one needs binaries in order to execute. Another factor being that it
is clear legalese and not moronic Stallmanese (which is only good for 
your crackpot theories regarding "whole combined works" being 
derivative works).
