Now what's the benefit of banning licenses just for being "deprecated"?

I really don't see what's wrong with:
http://opensource.org/licenses/intel-open-source-license.php
in particular, as as far as a non-lawyer like me can tell, it appears to be 
legally equivalent to a BSD license. The only added paragraph starts with 
"EXPORT LAWS: THIS LICENSE ADDS NO RESTRICTIONS TO THE EXPORT LAWS OF YOUR 
JURISDICTION. It is licensee's responsibility to comply with any export 
regulations applicable in licensee's jurisdiction.", so I don't see how 
that'd influence the freeness of the software at all.
