That can't be right.  If I take a produced work and spend a few hundred
hours adding hundreds of facts to it then it doesn't count as a derived
databse?  How do you judge whether a cartographer's efforts are just
worthless prettifying or the introduction of new information?

If you cannot reproduce the Produced Work 100% faithfully from the Derived
Database in what sense does the Derived Database contain all of the
information required to create the Produced Work?
