No way.  I don't even know what a "named appendix or a front-matter 
section" refers to for many types of documentation, let alone why 
I don't need the right to modify or remove it.

Please give one reason for allowing this other than "I want to allow 
Manual(s) X, Y, and Z in Debian".  Any one reason.
