/vendor are in fact not external libraries vendored-in, but "internally-vendored" - developed as a part of OSVR-Core, and likewise licensed under the Apache License 2.0, but are logically distinct from the Core in their functionality and are thus kept separate in anticipation of potential splitting off into a separate project at some future point.
