I've often wondered which part of the DFSG supports the notion that
the right to create modified versions must be available even to people
who don't want to pay money to the author to have that right.

Certainly, DFSG #3 says that modifications must be "allowed", but I
understand that this does not mean that a license can be non-free
simply because it requires the licensee to do various burdensome
things before the allowing actually takes pace.

Can you elucidate me, please?
