Beautiful and thanks Mike and others involved so far.

I will try and jump right in. I may not have too much time this month as I am 
in another scriptfrenzy - I have got to stop or control this. NaNoWriMo, 
ScriptFrenzy and now this year RPM Challenge as well.

Should this be:

The freedom to redistribute copies including modified copies
The freedom to distribute derivative works


The freedom to redistribute copies 
The freedom to distribute derivative works or modified copies

Probably the first and just to be clear that you can distribute with changes 
even where those changes are not extensive enough to constitute a new work...

2) All versions and ports of Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike licenses 
MUST protect the freedom of all users by requiring that when an adaptation of 
a work distributed under an Attribution-ShareAlike license is distributed, 
the adaptation must be distributed under the same license, or a license 
deemed by Creative Commons to grant and protect the same essential freedoms 
for all users in a compatible fashion (to be clear, such a compatible license 
must also satisfy the definition of a Free Cultural License set out in the 
Definition of Free Cultural Works AND ALSO HAVE COPYLEFT PROVISIONS).
