I do not know the X11 license, but changing the license of the plugin template recalls me of one thing:
If the GIMP is under the GPL, with no exceptions listed were appropriate, them it is ilegal for non GPL-compatible plugins to be installed.
This is quite clear on the GPL-FAQ. And for great that it may seen for some people to have some proprietary plugins developed for the GIMP, that otherwise would not, we get better respecting the GPL or __else__.
To allow for non gpl-compatible plugins to run with the GIMP, the license of the GIMP itself must include an exception note, stating that.

The template has been relicensed to a less restrictive X11-style license (thanks to Adam for his patch) and was updated to follow the GIMP-1.3 API changes. It requires at least GIMP-1.3.17. If you want to write a larger plug-in for GIMP 2.0, this package should give you a good start.
