Yes, it seems you are right. I misread, but there is no explicit permission
to redistribute modified version (the wording is 'use, copy, modify, and 
enhance and distribute'). So I think I wrongly supposed, based on the following
that the redistribution of modified source wasn't possible, but after a more
carefull reading, it seems that it is not explicitely forbidden, as the 
following states that the copyright of changes must be transfered to 
upstream not anything else...
