Sure, and I can see why they'd want to do that. My point is simply
that Apple is pragmatic about it. Sure, they want permissive licenses
if they can get them, and I think the FLOSS world is heading in that
direction. I'm not surprised they take advantage of the trend.

X11 is still a mess, and their development philosophy still sucks for
users and 3rd-party developers. If I can use the Mac GUI, I do.
Again, de-supporting X is arguably a pragmatic decision.
