Yes. The common definition is that if it is not open source, it is
proprietary. But you don't need to take my word for it.

Point 3 in the "What uses of Cloud Services do we not like?":

*"Proprietary software*: Do not use or install any software unless the
software is licensed under an Open Source license

The Wikimedia Cloud terms of use even narrows it down to only Open Source
Initiative approved licenses. So if not even CC0 licenses are allowed on
Wikimedia Cloud (that license is only approved by the FSF, not by the OSI),
for sure, the RAIL license is not allowed.
