@BRM sorry to burst your fantasy world...

We are not discussing some theoretical situation with A, B, C, D, etc

This topic and this forum is about a PUBLIC free office suite (yes, I
noticed you deliberately ignored my argument)

In this case the GPL clearly says that the written license MUST be
distributed with the program. Period.

Arguing that someone might not obey to that requirement is the same as
discussing if you should pay the items in your cart at the supermarket.  Of
course you can choose not to. And if there is no security at that particular
supermarket you can also argue that no one can enforce that law. But it is
still breaking the law even if you get away with it.

Let's keep the discussion realistic (or end it).
