I don't think we need to (or should have) this debate (again) here, but
I will point out for those following the thread (in case anyone still is
:) that your theory about the "rarity of derivative work creation" isn't
shared by most (including me) in the field of Free Software licensing.

I note that your entire argument about "the ease of compatibility" is
predicated on your notion that creating a derivative work rarely happens
in practice.  Thus, I hope you can see that if we disagree on that
fundamental point, we're going to come to very different conclusions
about license compatibility.
