You claim to contrast Free Software to Open Source, but the users' freedoms you list are freedoms common to both the FSF Free Software definition and the OSI Open Source definition.
(In fact, apart from slightly different wordings, I don't see that there is any substantive difference between the two definitions in terms of the freedoms they guarantee. The only licence in Wikipedia's list that the OSI lists as complying with its definition but the FSF does not for its is the Artistic licence 1.0; and that only because the FSF think it's "too vague".)
