You missed my point.  In that case, we would not be allowed to
distribute the GPL, because it is itself a work, and is not "free"
under the definition you gave.

Every package (or nearly so) in Debian *does* contain invariant text.
Nobody sees this as a problem, if the text is a license.  But it's
important to remember both of those facts.
