The licence issue is allready solved by migrating to lesstif, it allready
shows the commitment to have only OSI approved licences. Waiting one more 
release won't hurt, openmotif has been here for many releases. Keeping
it for that release could help the transition, so why not keep it?
It should be announced in the release notes and wherever possible that it 
will disappear soon of course.

Finding the correct behaviour when a runtime bug is discovered will be 
much helped if it is possible to test against openmotif. Moreover it will
let more time to find a suitable house for openmotif.
