This is still not true. I will repeat my example with further detail
added in to address your previous reply.

I translate RMS's essays. I switch all instances where it says "free
software" to say "open source" and adjust sentences accordingly. I then
state on the cover of my book: "This is the official and definitive
translation of Richard Stallman's work".  While I might be in compliance
with a CC BY-SA license, my translation would still clearly be a
misrepresentation of Stallman and his work.
