Sorry but nothing "stands" as yet since we haven't heard from enough
authors and some authors opposed "prohibition of print" licenses but
haven't responded to the "compromise" idea.  Changing our definition
of "free" (to less free than it already is) is a major policy decision
that is to be made only with reasoned, informed consensus and we
certainly don't have this now.  Note that consensus means more than
just majority vote.
