Yes, it does have some similarities with Affero. I will put up a draft
for discussion on "FOSS-PLUS" license.
I think it will be suitable for:
1. Software for people with strong security and privacy concerns or
distrust of proprietary s/w.
2. Software that processes sensitive information (s/w for cloning,
health-related info, sensitive scientific
3. Safety-Critical Software
... at least. It may also appeal to people interested in opening up
code for commercial benefit.
