Again, we're talking about software that gives people four freedoms and  
thus the licence fits the definition of Free Software.  In this  
situation I think the term Free Software fits the bill.  Why would we  
use the term FLOSS when we are specifically talking about the four  
freedoms of Free Software?
Thank you,
Aidan Delaney.
