[Fedora-legal-list] DMTF schema distribution

I'm working on a CIM provider package where we need to ship a version
(v2.16) of the DMTF CIM schema in our package. The tog-pegasus
package does this already, but with a *very* old version (v2.9) that
does not include any of the virtualization models.
The DMTF schema files are not (AFAICT) released under any particular
license, but they do have this statement at the top-level:
// DMTF is a not-for-profit association of industry members
// dedicated to promoting enterprise and systems management and
// interoperability. DMTF specifications and documents may be
// reproduced for uses consistent with this purpose by members and
// non-members, provided that correct attribution is given.
I was planning to put a separate COPYING or LICENSE file in the
directory of the tarball/RPM containing the schema, highlighting the
above and making it clear that the schema was not covered under the
LGPL license of the package.
I would like some advice on how to proceed.
