feature: what if we were licensed under MIT? (#1602) (#1608)

I keep getting reports from folks who want to contribute but their employer has a restrictive list of pre-approved licenses and MSPL isn't on that list. What if we enabled those to help us? Much easier than making them go through internal corporate bs.
