I am confused. The BSD 3-Clause License[0] states the following:

"Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without
modification, are permitted provided that the following conditions are met:"

Specifically in regards to binary redistribution:

"2. Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright
notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer in the
documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution."

The MIT/X license allows for this as well.

Am I missing something here?
