Please generalize to free, open source. Period.

If someone (like me for example) would like to develop en open source HW
implementation, the "software" distinction really is a hindrance that I
think stems from ignorance that there are open HW implementations too.

(This software only designation is unfortunately pretty common in open
licenses for algorithms.)
