Re: ELPA license, LGPL + additional restrictions

The first line of the LGPL is Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed. I understand that this restriction is intended to reduce license proliferation. So is the ELPA actually allowed to add restrictions to the LGPL? If they want something that's almost LGPL, but not quite, they surely have to write their own license, with different wording.
