But what term in the OSD requires unrestricted distribution of all
derivative works in binary form? OSD#3 only requires distribution
"under the same terms as the license of the original software",
which does not seem to prohibit terms that carry restrictions.
Indeed, OSD#2 is in effect a restriction on the form of a derivative
work (when distributed under the same license), and OSD#4 permits
restrictions. MPL 1.1, for example, imposes restrictions on distribution
of executables:
You may distribute Covered Code in Executable form only if the
requirements of Section 3.1-3.5 have been met for that Covered
Code
Why are MPL's restrictions acceptable, but mine are not?
