So are you now disagreeing with your responses to my message about
licenses that provide additional permissions to classes of users?
(I've thought about your desire to rephrase in terms of restrictions
and additional permissions. I believe that it is additional
permissions we discuss here, not additional restrictions. The reason
is that the default state in copyright is that you have no permission;
we speak of limited grants of copyright, not limited restrictions.)
