Not to only mention that it doesn't specify that you have to have it immediately aviable.. and that it's always been possible to recoup the expenses caused by distributing the source code. (at least in GPLv2, I assume they didn't change it in GPLv3 draft)
For instance if you need to go out and stamp a bunch of cdroms for some people you can change those people postage and the costs of making those cdroms.
So that way you don't have to deal with some a-hole trolling and demanding a hundred copies of source code while posing as multiple people over email or whatnot.
At least that is my understanding.
