Right. My point is that it's not helpful to say “modified versions of
the GPL” are allowed, since at that point the term “GPL” doesn't apply
usefully. Any text can be considered a “modified version of the GPL”,
given sufficient modification.

Better to simplify that to just “any license terms, given the following
conditions:” and be clear on exactly what kinds of license terms are
