Sure. But it's not relevant to this discussion -- despite what many of

Are you saying there's not? So who's going to sue me (or Debian) for
adopting an overbroad idea of what constitutes a derivative? "Hey, you
decided to abide by my license terms when you didn't have to. I'm gonna
sue!" (Standing? What's that?)
Conversely, if our idea of what constitutes a derived work is too
narrow we could end up violating someone's copyright.
