This clause confuses me.

Is this really saying that I can distribute The Work, or ANY Derived Work,
under any license I choose, as long as 7a (which is really just a pointer
to 5a, which says that if you're not the current maintainer, you must make
modifications sufficiently obvious) is satisfied?

For example, you could distribute The Work under a DWTFYW[0] license, plus
the condition that it never be distributed as files named pig.*

I'm curious what the reasoning is for this clause.
