I'm not sure why you say that it is missing. Octave has understood
colon indexing for a long time. In versions 2.0.12 and later, I
believe that it works in a Matlab-compatible way no matter what the
value of do_fortran_indexing. For earlier versions, you had to set
do_fortran_indexing to 1 (or, for really ancient versions, "yes") to
enable compatible behavior.

If you want an interpretation of the Matlab copyright and license, I
think it would make more sense to ask someone at the MathWorks for an
official statement on the issue.
