That's a question for you to answer, not to ask.  Who besides you thinks 
that it's a good license for open source software?

If it is recognized by the OSF or FSF or some other authority as a FOSS 
license, then CRAN would probably also recognize it.  If not, then CRAN 
doesn't have the resources to evaluate it and so is unlikely to 
recognize it.
