+Explanation:
+
+Angle brackets hold "fields", e.g. <copyright holder>.
+
+Square brackets hold optional text, e.g. [or <related entities>].
+
+A license can have variations in capitalization and whitespace, and
+still be considered an instance of this template.
+
+It may be possible to construct a grammatically incorrect license from
+this template, or one that lacks a disclaimer, or one that includes a
+double-disclaimer. That is acceptable, as long as it remains impossible
+to construct a non-OSD-compliant license that matches the pattern.
