Those licensing issues would be blockers in general, but in that case
some problematic softwares are in tetex already, it is an already existing
issue, so I think it is not unacceptable to have problematic parts goes
in, given that most of the time the issue is that a license is missing,
and the author intention is certainly to make free software.

I mailed all the issues I found out to the texlive maintainer and Spot
is also doing a license review.
