I'm wondering if you consider my example in [0], which considers
modifying a document to work on a display device with limited charset
(e.g., ASCII-only) support, to be a modification necessary to solve some
particular need.

In particular, after doing the work to convert the document to the right
character set, I'm pretty sure that I am not able to give that modified
version to my neighbor.
