Fair enough. Is BSD the same?
Haven't looked at BSD fully, but I understand it to be more along the lines of a PD (free for all) type licence. For this type of project I would not want to do work that Award could come by and just take it for their own.
I think a middle ground might be a licease that makes normal usage GPL like but allows the OpenBIOS group (I guess that's what we are) to sublicease it to companies for the purpose listed above. (I think the XFree86 project did something like this)
