But why do you want to stop the distribution of misrepresenting derivative 
works? Precisely to increase understanding and/or decrese misunderstanding 
among users. It's a means to an end.

And my point is: licensing is the wrong means to that end. Because:
a). regardless of the license, I can still do a parody of your "work of
    opinion", this is explicitly allowed for by copyright;
b). regardless of a license, people *will* misunderstand/misrepresent it;
c). regardless of the license, it is *illegal* to misattribute quotes or to
    misquote, anyway.
