IMHO, this violates OSD #1:-
'as a component of an aggregate software distribution containing'

Violates OSD #9
These terms restrict use of other software (here, s/w under GPL) used
in conjunction with s/w under terms of this license.
In his subsequent posts, the proposer apparently says that he has
different intents, but they do not reflect in the license terms.
