Asking legal advise on (presumably technical) mailing lists? Or are
there dedicated lawyers' lists you're thinking of?

Sounds like a recipe for big flamefests, and self-important people
stroking their self-steem by claiming you can't do that without royal
decree. Legal bikeshedding that is sane to keep far far from any
productive project.

For an illustrative example, see the debian-legal archives :-)

FWIW, it _is_ a UI bug to match flags with languages, but it's just
that: a UI bug. Any nutter can go sue half the multi-lingual websites
on the intarwebs.
