I disagree, the wording is far too vague, even with that modification.
It opens distributors up to lawsuits that may very well be lost if they
do something like, say, distribute it in an archive format which has a
new type of (very effective) compression which may be publically
documented but isn't actually implemented anywhere other than the
distributor's own software.
