These are hardly clarifications. The former is a major shift away from
longstanding policy. Wikimedia has long made the stand that we are not
merely about content under a free licence, but also about content in
formats that are under freel licence. It is *categorigally* not a
clarification to walk away from this.

To call the latter a clarification is a stupendous misuse of the term "clarity".
