[Fedora-legal-list] Modified QPL

I'm helping out with an update to the frama-c package.  Some of the
source files refer to a modified Q Public License.  The modification
is to this section:

                            Choice of Law

This license is governed by the Laws of France.

The license file (attached) also contains this paragraph:

As a special exception to the Q Public Licence, you may develop
application programs, reusable components and other software items
that link with the original or modified versions of the Generator
and are not made available to the general public, without any of the
additional requirements listed in clause 6c of the Q Public licence.

The current spec file calls this "QPL with modifications", which
rpmlint doesn't like.  Should it be "QPL with exceptions", or does the
change in governing law require this to have a more complex name?
