One just can't be a party (licensor or licensee) to an intellectual
property license under unknown/unspecified/future/later terms. A promise
to make a promise is not enforceable.

"THE COURT: -- it sounded like it was all mixed together, all jumbled,
mumbled and that we needed to talk to Mr. Thorson. Now nobody ever told
me that Mr. Thorson ever agreed, so it sounds like a promise to make a
promise, which of course, the law doesn't recognize as an enforceable
contract. A contract in the future is not a contract. Horn book law. . .


(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
