This is, of course, infinitely better from a our point of view.

However, IIUC the underlying rationale for 7d is to allow
compatibility with things like the Affero license, which puts
restriction even on things that do not fall under the GPLv3 draft's
concept of "propagation". Therefore your proposed replacement would
not do the job.

Why would that require a copyright license?
