I think there are also:
* required identification and indemnification by all contributors (a fee)
* discrimination against offering licensed warranty, support,
indemnity and liability
* possible non-modifiable attribution notices which aren't copyright notices
The first two of those apply to all CDDL works, so no CDDL'd works
could be free software at present. I believe the second point is a
result of poor phrasing rather than intentional discrimination.
I notice that FSF disagrees, but based on an early version of CDDL.
I've not checked for differences.
