It's been suggested - and agreed, I seem to remember - that there's no
reason why the copyright holder should not be allowed to hold and distibute
the key for a reasonable copyright key. The locked module concerned could
eithre reside at the publisher's site or at the Sword site.
I don't think that any copyright holder is suspicious of Sword because of
very restricted in-house testing. It is more likely that they are
suspicious because they have been harangued by those among us who don't
think a labourer should be allowed his hire - and say so in a very
outspoken way on this list!
