But what is a "free work"?  Not even RMS disputed that GFDL with
Invariant Sections are not free software, see

Maybe when FSF publish their Free Works Definition to go alongside the
Free Software Definition, and how to tell the difference between
Software and Works, I will understand their reasoning.

Hope that explains,
