Is that intentional though, and if so, why?

If possible, I would much rather see it changed to tristate and leave
all the metadata below.

Sven, as this code appears to be all by ArcX people, any chance you can
make it just GPL (SPDX GPL-2.0-or-later)? Only reason to have it v2-only
would be if this code was derived from v2-only code that can't be
relicensed anymore.

Thanks,
Andreas
