I'm not sure going point-by-point through the text of the license is
the best way to proceed; I feel like the main point gets a little
lost.  For instance, the DRM issues, which RMS has said the FSF will
address (eventually), happen to come up first, while I feel the heart
of the disagreement is over the invariant sections.  At least, I would
have some executive summary at the beginning.
