We formerly decided to treat each combination of license + exception as a separate license since the exception can change the terms materially. For instance GPL + Classpath is more permissive than LGPL. From a practical point of view, the exception creates a different license. Tom
Thanks for pointing that out. That agreement must have been reached before i joined the group. I agree that approach makes the most sense.

We could make the relationship explicit by defining a dc:hasPart property on the license+exception with the value of the original license. This would allow tools to more easily show how various license are related to one another.
