What if she gave away the complete product as received (not including
source, but including the written offer) and the CDs, which contain
the binaries, were not readable? ;)

The thing is passed on to another 3rd party. Whether complete or not,
doesn't matter.

The written offer could contain a license key and a specific address [or
even phone number] where to request the source code using the license
key or a copy of the written offer as input. It doesn't need to be a
publicly accessible ftp server with anonymous access.
