Fully agreed on that. The same argument that we use for GPL 2 only
applies here: we should stick with an specific version of this it, in
a way that we won't be automatically bound to whatever new version
of it would say.

Btw, the term "social contract" is there at the FAQ. At least in
Brazil, as far as I can tell, there's no distinction of a "social
contract" and a "contract". From what I understand, both will have
equal legal value.
