I must disagree again. OCA
- recognized a risk for the users of strict application of AGPL and
was willing to secure them
- as a copyright holder of their modules, grant the right to use a
loose interpretation.

APGL historical reason to exist is to avoid this incorporation of AGPL
work in a proprietary solution. A year ago, everybody in the Odoo
community thought it couldn't ever be by-passed.
