As a copyleft enforcement expert, I'll comment on this part:

I think that becomes an enforcement issue of the license which may have
some problems,

I really it's probably OT to continue this subthread further, but I'd
be very interested to hear why you think Exhibit A causes enforcement
problems, Jilayne.

I think at first (when I wrote the first sentence) it seemed like there could be some privity issue and I had to think through who would be suing who and for what. after thinking through that, I ended up with - it’s possible, but I surely hope unlikely!  (and didn’t bother revising wording, since it is OT ;) 

[0] I'm calling EPL-2.0-revised because there are two documents named EPL-2.0
   in the wild, and the EPL-2.0-original was discussed on this list as well.

my understanding was the what is published here: is the same as what the OSI posted and is the final, published version. I believe Wayne from the Eclipse Foundation and Richard F from OSI confirmed this as so.
