If license X is incompatible with the DFSG solely because license X prohibits the use of DRM, the solution isn't to change license X, but rather to fix the DFSG. The purpose of the DFSG is to promote freedom, and DRM clearly does not. The DFSG should be revised to allow the use of licenses that have anti-DRM clauses (provided such licenses meet all of the other requirements).
