For the record, I disagree that this faq is "patently false".

It is, in places, a bit simplistic, but I wouldn't advise anyone
delve into those fine points of law unless they've retained
the services of a lawyer (at which point the FAQ is merely
an interesting commentary -- it has less weight than
professional advice).

Furthermore, that FAQ is far and away better than anything
you've proposed.
