The Free Software Definition mentions nothing about differing
importance of each freedom,
How the conflicts are resolved then? If they all are equally important
then the only free license is "public domain" - everything else limits
nor that freedom 3 is optional.
Sorry, but you have funny idea about what freedom is. If you are persona
non-grata in Russia and so can not visit Siberia - your mobility freedom is
affected, if you can only live in Siberia (and in particular place
at that) - it's called banishment and hardly can be called "freedom" too.
With GPL my freedom 3 is somewhat affected: if I decide to distribute
binary - I must promise to give recepient sources too. It's fair: freedom 3
is only freedom 3, after all, and freedoms 0, 1, and 2 come first. With
AGPL I have no choice: if I use the code in my web app - I my distribute
both binaries and sources despite my protest - and this violates freedom 0.
You and RMS can play fast and loose with definitions as long as you want,
but I read them in order and this approach clearly says that AGPL is not
