And I guess we're back to my original question: what derivative work do 
you (Musical Notation) want to do?
Currently, we have an HTML5 version of ES5 [1]. A tool to convert the 
docx ES6 drafts to HTML [2], a compile-to-JS language that's very close 
to JS [3] and refers to the ECMA-262 spec.
What else do you want to do and that the current license doesn't permit?

I'm usually a very strong defendant of free licenses and free software, 
but I'm puzzled by the current request. The current license has never 
felt like a limitation. Can it ever be a limitation?
