Version 3.0 includes the following language restricting modifications, 
which is not included in 2.5:

"Except as otherwise agreed in writing by the Licensor or as may be 
otherwise permitted by applicable law, if You Reproduce, Distribute or 
Publicly Perform the Work either by itself or as part of any Adaptations 
or Collections, You must not distort, mutilate, modify or take other 
derogatory action in relation to the Work which would be prejudicial to 
the Original Author's honor or reputation."
