Those permissions are quite significant and alterĀ  a number of the terms of the LGPL which have been problematic for us in the past. At this point I would ask that we follow David's advice: open a CQ making it clear the license is LGPL *with additional permissions* and see what the IP team has to say. Please cc me on the CQ, and provide a pointer to this thread on the PMC list.
