Agreed about DFSG 1, but I think that, given the following:

  No charge, other than an "at-cost" distribution fee, may be charged
  for copies, derivations, or distributions of this material without the
  express written consent of the copyright holders.

... it's reasonable to assume that derivations that are distributed
without charge or at cost are permitted.
