Please stop quoting blatant lies.  It absolutely does contain 
restrictions.  The W3C Document Licence states:

   "No right to create modifications or derivatives of W3C documents is
    granted pursuant to this license."

That imposes the restrictions.  Option 3 only carves out 3 exceptions 
for software, supporting materials accompanying software, and 
documentation of software.

Downstream users are still restricted from using the material for 
anything that is either not covered by those 3 exceptions and not 
otherwise permitted by copyright laws under fair use (or similar) where 
applicable.
