You seem to be missinformed: When cdrtools have been 100% GPL, it was attacked 
by Debian _because_ it was 100% GPL and because the GPL is a frequently 
missinterpreted license.

...so I decided to choose a less problematic license than the GPL.

Democracy is that the doers and this are software authors decide about the 
license. Distros are just users of the software and have to accept the license 
and as long as the license is doubtless OSS compliant, I see no reason why a 
distro should complain.
