Just guessing, but I thought that the term "lightweight"
was left vague so as to be inclusionary (if there is such a word).
The Call for Participation did offer the criteron
"that these languages are easy to acquire, learn, and use."
One could also infer that a lightweight language was one that
appeared outside of the academic world.
I did wonder specifically about OCaml, and whether it qualified.
