> OSD#3 says "The license must allow modifications and derived works."

I take that as meaning the license must grant the right to
*prepare* derivative works, which my license sketch does.
I don't see how you can read *distribution* of those works
into just the specific phrase you quote, especially since
the next phrase deals specifically with distribution.
