DFSG #4 was specifically written explicitly to accomodate a situation where the user would potentially lose the right to support if he modified the program. ABISource's intent was to support their official version only. Now, you can always go back to the official version when you need support. But if you are going to modify the program, it only seems fair that you should take on the support burden for your modification.Indeed; however, IMO excerting the right to modify as defined by the DFSG should never result in the loss of support, or other negative consequences, because in that case you might as well not have it. This type of certification does carry that kind of negative consequence.
