It's not necessary to suggest TDF changes it's chosen licence. It's true that if they did
new possibilities would be opened but why should we expect them to do so. Some will find the
suggestion insulting others will be happy to contribute their code to shared code under the
Apache License 2.0 where it can be reused in LibreOffice, there is no new for a wholesale
change of philosophy.

Again, I don't think this is necessary, but if the first sentence (above) is removed I find
it more reasonable. Personally I'd remove both.
