xml_id is a data reference it is not source code AFAIU it is not Licence aware.

I would like to use the module base_user_role (AGPL).

For the project at hand, I need to create set up (groups <-> roles) in other modules that are potentially private license.

I do not need to copy code or inherit models but only need to make reference to roles xml_id and somehow depend on the base module.

What is the situation on licensing in this case and propagation of the AGPL in this case?

I personally understand that this is data and that technically licenses might be compatible but I any wise and expert clarification on the usage would be appreciated
