I do not think this provision can be circumvented. You have to "offer the 
opportunity to receive the Corresponding Source".


I want to enforce sharing, so I like the Affero-like protection. I fear a fork 
and lock.

  Note that it's "a network server" not "the same network server" or
  "the same network session" as mentioned in earlier drafts -- so the
  source can be hosted elsewhere.


 Therefore, the problem of the DoS is solved.  Are there any other one?

I actually appreciate your feedback about this subject!.  Please, expose any 
fear you have.
