Re:A possible distinction

In other words you are saying that Linus is Wrong and the Moglen is right.

Because what you wrote is exactly what the current GPL3 draft does! It says that keys only need to be included as part of the source if leaving them out would prevent the modified source from continuing to operate. Keys need not be included when the admin has the ability and choice to modify the software, when the admin has the ability to choose weather to use signed or unsigned binaries. The keys only need to be included if leaving the keys out would deny the admin ability and choice.
