IBM's "open source" definition

IBM's definition of "open source" here is a bit odd. For example, it includes licenses that require the copyright owner to be notified before each redistribution, and the recipients identified. That definition might suffice for the purposes of this patent grant, but it would be an unfortunate if it were repeated in other contexts.
