The proposed license says (roughly) "if you sue us, this license is
revoked".  How is one a use restriction and the other not?

"Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, ...." might have something to do with it.

The act of running the Program is not restricted by the proposed Apache
license either.  We don't need to list all of the things that are not
restricted by the license.
