That is your opinion, the FSF's opinion is different.  The FSF has
shown that it is willing to defend their opinion, even if it means
going to court.  Unless you are also willing to go to court to defend
your opinion, I think I'll side with the FSF interpretation for now.
(Not that I think it's right, but I have better ways to spend my
