The issue isn't the messages. but how you describe what you've done
in, say, documentation or ChangeLog entries.  If you claim, in any

The politics of IP are off-topic here, but I believe that it's not just a
license fee, but that there's also some (mild, but nonzero) verification
that you are actually doing checking against those rules.
