Having reviewed the 3.0 generic license draft, I can confirm that there 
is no prosed change. The language of the 2.5 and 3.0 licenses are in 
this respect basically the same. The only, minor, difference is that the 
3.0 generic license replaces the word (and concept of) "derivative work" 
with "adaptation".
