Of course, that's largely the licensor's business, not the licensee's

I am fully aware that the VRI license is not valid in the context of
Squeak-L. However, IP owners may license their stuff under as many
licenses as they choose. So either VRI (conveniently?) overlooked the
Squeak-L, or they did their homework and simply received the stuff
under a different license than the general public.
