Apache has been a mature project for quite some time, what you should
be asking instead is why did others go for GPL for their httpd.

In any case this sort of clause is most common with projects like
google map maker, In fact until recently this was a reason used to
promote OSM, the fact that it didn't use the same terms as google map
maker.
