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.
