There is apparently some ambiguity surrounding my use of the verb "publish"
in the RBL Subscriber Agreement. I will see that this is fixed in V2.1.

There is no requirement that anyone sign a license if they aren't subscribing,
where "subscribing" means receiving it as an eBGP4 or DNS "feed". If you're
using "FEATURE(rbl)" in sendmail 8.9.0, or a similar feature of other mailers,
you're using the RBL but you're not a subscriber (and more power to you).

The first line of complaint is the ISP who uses the RBL. If someone turns it
on without notifying their customers / downstreams, they'll hear about it
