That applies to documents, not computer programs. It says
"No right to create modifications or derivatives of W3C documents is
granted pursuant to this license", which means that someone who
took out schema files and edited them in any way to include in their
own schemas would be breaking copyright.

What we need is a reference to
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/2002/copyright-software-20021231, I
think, which is subtly different.
