This discussion came up recently on debian-legal and it's not clear
that your interpretation is consistent with what wasn't quite a
consensus there.

In particular note that everyone can choose to treat the license as if
it said they had to distribute their changes.

However, debian-legal has tended to view licenses requiring changes be
distributed to be problematic in many cases because it makes it hard
to do disconnected development for example without a connection to the
Internet etc.
