[License-discuss] plain text license versions?

Have we (OSI) ever seriously adding putting plain text versions of
licenses (where available) to the OSI website? Just off the top of my
head, Mozilla, FSF, and Apache all provide both HTML and plain text
versions of their licenses, and I'm sure others must as well.

Seems like it would be useful for OSI to do this as well. That said,
it hasn't already been done, I'm guessing there is some reason
(historical? technical? inertial? other?) for it. Anyone know what
that reason is?
