I don't see anywhere that this fails the DFSG. Asking that someone must
hit such-and-such a web page with changes (and its moral equivalents) I
will buy as a violation of DFSG 5; I can't see where being forced to
provide source code (under the QPL) when asked fails, though.

(If you're on a desert island, you never get the request and so can't
give it to them.)
