Oh, I think it's okay to copyleft them, but I think if things 
like Ogg Vorbis are to achieve any level of saturation on the 
marketplace, where they will be useful on things like iPods and 
the like, then a license like the BSD (which is what they went 
for) is more useful. I don't think Microsoft is going to fork it.
