Over the years the OSI has gradually driven away its more reasonable membership, and now selects only the compatibly irrational.
Probably the best thing Bruce could do now is to start a competing group, welcoming all reasonable persons as members -- and also the OSI membership. The latter will be roundly outnumbered. His competing group may begin by defining as "Open Source" any product for which the source code is available on RAND terms, and concentrate on compatibility with Free Software instead.
The "Open Source" brand has proved a distraction at best, and a proliferator of non-Free licenses at worst. Let the brand join its promoters in well deserved obscurity.
