OSI is not simply bound to interpret the OSD, but to protect user's
software freedom. Thus, we can apply this rule:

   - The freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose (freedom

Your proposed text does not grant that freedom. The data release terms
prevent some purposes, even regarding entirely unmodified software as
distributed by your customer.

I believe the data release terms also violate the OSD, but since some folks
here believe you can use #5 and #6 of the OSD against anything you want,
let's use the FSF rule, which OSI is also bound to by its own rules.

Obviously I have many other problems with the license.
