    The GFDL restricts the freedoms of the recipients in that they
    cannot omit certain parts of documents licensed under it (invariant

Just for the record ... those invariant sections are specifically
intended solely for ethical and legal texts which should not be
modifiable.  Not technical information.  Obviously, rms is the last
person in the world who would create and promote a license that
restricts sharing of software documentation.

something about this sadly contentious point between GNU and Debian.
