AFAIK, only the copyright holder can relicense a copyrighted work, whereas
others may sublicense under compatible terms so long as the original
license grants that permission (ie: the license of the original work is not
actually changing).

Is that not correct?

Mike,

I'll point out that sublicense is probably not the right term.  While both
are Cat A, the BSD license is much less restrictive/offers less than the
Apache license.  Re-license is more accurate.  Its still compatible with
BSD, and removes any expectation that one is more/less than the other
license.
