You can't do this. You just took a copyrighted work (the FreeBSD
Documentation License), put a different organization's copyright notice on
it, stripped off the original copyright notice, and renamed it.
That's copyright infringement. It's also plagarism, because you don't credit
the origin of the work.
License texts may be literary works, subject to copyright, too. Remember
Dammit, I keep having to bring this topic up. People seem to have a blind
spot about license licensing.
