However, I don't see why that should give much problems. You don't
want to change to standards anyhow. Changing the document to develop
internet standards is allowed. Translating is allowed. I'm not sure
chaning the format is allowed, but that would be useful too. But other
than that, I don't see how it restricts the user. 

And probably I forget if the case that is useful to be able to modify
the document. If there is such a case that would change my opinion,
but I don't see it at the moment.
