I think you misunderstand the license.
1. You are not allowed to remove the copyright of the source.
2. You must distribute the license with the product (which includes the 
copyright notice).
3. You are not allowed to use the Apache "brands" to promote your product, 
without written consent *

Besides that, IANAL, you free to do pretty much what you want.
You can base your own code on top of, or integrate into, derive or whatever, 
and then re-license the total package any way you like, BSD/ASF-style, (L)GPL 
or commercial.

I you 're-use' the license itself, just replace "The Apache Software 
Foundation" with your own name or entity, and the appropriate "brands". Of 
course, the license applies to any part of the combined work BUT the 
Copyright is never revoked from the sources.

I hope that was clear enough.


* The "consent" has been a hot topic before, and I am not sure what wordings 
are appropriate and what are not. Just ask when the time comes.
