OK, I admit that that one's a bit odd (no licence listed). But suppose for
the sake of argument that it was licenced under the BSD licence.
Would you still make the same claim?
How about if it was licenced under the GPL, with the specification that the
text of the page constituted the source code?
If so, we have a bigger problem; the GPL is legally unsafe!
If not, then why do you need these clauses in the GFDL which aren't the GPL
or BSD licences?
I'm really trying to see your point here.
