anything about the purported loss/restoration of Defendant's rights

I assume that it's because Cisco never agreed that they had lost
those rights, so it would not be part of the settlement agreement
that the rights were restored. Cisco agrees to be better about
being in timely compliance, and the FSF agrees that this is OK
with them. That's fine, since they're the rights holders.

For what it's worth, I believe that reinstatement is automatic with
compliance, but that's just my opinion (and apparently the opinion
of Judge Saris
The FSF would like for it to require permission, but just like for
dynamic linking, it's doubtful whether they could have that enforced.
