Besides that (IMO) unnecessary restriction, OCHA probably doesn't have the right to relicense.
The COD/FOD is a collection of data sets from many sources (including me in fact), and they should simply communicate the license, not assign new restrictions.
I do know folks involved with this at OCHA, will ping them about it.
