Isn't CPAN an exception?
Every author that opens an account in PAUSE and submits files to it knows that
they will be heavely mirrored (right now CPAN has more than 260 official mirrors).

Fedora Core perl packages with "Distributable" license
------------------------------------------------------
distributable perl-Compress-Zlib
Distributable perl-File-MMagic
distributable perl-Net-Telnet
Distributable perl-TermReadKey
Distributable perl-URI
distributable perl-XML-Grove

Fedora Extras perl packages with "Distributable" license
--------------------------------------------------------
Distributable perl-Class-DBI-Loader-Relationship
Distributable perl-Crypt-Blowfish
Distributable perl-Lingua-EN-Inflect-Number
Distributable perl-Mail-Sender
Distributable perl-Mail-Sendmail
Distributable perl-Time-modules
Distributable perl-UNIVERSAL-exports

PS - Haven't checked their licenses but I remembered one or two Maypole
requirements being approved with a Distributable license due to lack of
license information.
