I also distribute Exiv2 under a commercial license which allows 
customers to include it in their proprietary software.
The Nikon lens database was contributed explicitely under the condition 
that it should only be used in the open source version.
As for the XP tags conversion, that is a tiny feature which uses iconv 
and just to avoid any potential long-winded discussions about LGPL and 
proprietary software, I request that it's disabled as well.
And to complete the picture, i18n is also disabled in this version. I 
don't own the copyright of most of the translations.
(See the README file for detailed insructions)
