Passed your query on to Richard Fontana from Red Hat Legal,
who provided some really good feedback. :)

  Proprietary translators are allowed provided their licensing is not
  in conflict with the (LGPLv3|GPLv2) licensing of GlusterFS. In fact,
  LGPLv3 was chosen by the project mainly to allow development of
  proprietary translators.

He also mentioned that if you have follow up questions we
could then address those (as time permits).

Naturally, for super specific details just for your intended
usage you should probably go hire your own legal people. :)

Does that help?

Regards and best wishes,
