Would there be someting against also adopting SCST now? Either that, or adding code from other sources to the mainline version of RTS.
Competition would be a much better driving force than lawyers.
But the core of the problem seems to be in the 'single source of code'. The 'derived work' claim seems a bit of a slippery slope to me. Better to fix this through multiple authors - which may bell happen over time as the code is adjusted to match changes in the kernel.
