Well, many DFSG begin with "The license must..." or "The license
may...".
They are guidelines that must be followed by the license: *licensees*
need a license, *right-holders* don't.
So I don't see how can the DFSG specify the permissions that *Debian*
gives to *right-holders*...

Correct me if I'm wrong.
