It seems reasonable. They want to avoid any unanticipated legal hassles ($$$) 
with open-source license holders, and also avoid having to turn over anything 
that they would prefer to be their own private intellectual property. They're 
on the ball. How this would play out could depend on which open-source license 
is involved. There are possibly some that they could accept since they allow 
more freedom than some others.
