Look, I don't saying we want to produce closed-source modules or apps.
We want to write open source code. Just imagine, that certain header
files have some proprietary license (e.g. some device interface
definition and this interface is IP of company which developed it).
AFAIK, it can't be included into Xen distribution. I thought, that it
can be included in some module with different (but still open source)
license.  But if you say that it can't... Then I don't know. It is out
of my competence. I'm not lawyer also.
