Since I think something more narrowly tailored could effectively serve
the same interest, I hold that it's probably not DFSG-free.  But I would
change my mind if I can't find a way to rewrite (2)(c) to work
effectively without this (I think I can).

I don't think so.  But I do think it ambiguously diallows it -- that is,
I wouldn't want to be in court trying to enforce that interpretation.
