	As do I I have just read the DFSG2. I am still unsure about
 what was said, exactly. I shall go and read it again. I never had
 that problem with the DFSG. Replacing a clear startement of what is
 free with legal-looking gobledygook is a really bad idea.

	I agree that the DFSG may have been unclear at
 points. Obfuscating the document is unlikely to help.
