It probably fails the Chinese Dissident test, but I don't think that's a
problem. The requirement to not modify "descriptive text" that provides
attributions /may/ be a problem, but that'll depend on specific code
rather than being a general problem (in the same way that the GFDL's
granting of permission to add invariant sections isn't a problem - but
people using that permission is).

I think it's probably DFSG-free, but plainly GPL incompatible.
