"Elaborations" is from 17 U.S.C. 101: " A work consisting of editorial
revisions, annotations,* elaborations*, or other modifications which, as a
whole, represent an original work of authorship, is a 'derivative work.'"
Current language (from live link above): "The terms of this License apply
to the Work as you receive it from Licensor, as well as to any revisions,
modifications, elaborations, or implementations created by You that contain
any licenseable portion of the Work (a “Modified Work”)."
