IIRC it was already noted by others that the lack of an example where 
share-alike applies kind of makes the whole thing appear unbalanced and 
endangers meeting the purpose to clarify 'where the line is drawn'.

Independent of the actual content adding a non-trivial counter-example 
would IMO significantly improve practical usefulness and understanding 
of the guideline.
