Still not happy. It should be possible for me to burn the contents of
my home directory onto an encrypted DVD and give it to somebody for
safekeeping (possibly accompanied with the key in a sealed envelope to
be used in case of my death). If the licence for some work prevents me
from having the work in my home directory when doing this, I hold it
to be non-free.
I'm not sure about other countries, but I'm pretty sure making and storing private archive copies doesn't count as "distribution" for copyright purposes in the USA.

That said, I'd like to come out of this discussion with some better wording and get to a final version of this doc. So, please, other suggestions.
