yes, i think so - one of the criteria should require adequate
documentation, at least for for the most common Free Software
licenses - non-free licenses and "no license" are permitted at
the B level (A4 requires free licenses only); so the
documentation should not need to be exhaustive - just a decent
effort to explain the ones that 98% of projects use (BSDs,
MITs, GPLs, MPLs, apaches, CCs, etc)

the github choose-a-license documentation is freely-licensed; and
we agreed that it is comprehensive enough; though you thought
there were a few discrepancies regarding the GPLs - with a bit
of tweaking, the choose-a-license documentation could be a
simple drop-in for B2-1 - so this would not be unreasonable to
ask of hosts; because they would not even need to write it
themselves, only to host it

how about this wording:
