It's from before my time, but I believe that's why we talk about
"published" uploads instead of "upstream" ones: it means they come from
somewhere upstream from where they're being imported, but not
necessarily from all the way upstream. So as long as an upload is
marked as published, Launchpad knows it's not the original source and
knows not to assume it's BSD-licensed.
The change we're going through now should make it easier for us to
explain this in the future, without too much legalese.
