So from that and

if we are modifying and distributing *the modifications* under AL2.0, as
long as we comply with CC-BY 4.0 (i.e. NOTICE) and as long as we do not
prevent others from receiving their license grant to the original
unmodified Licensed Material then it would seem to me from my pedantic
mathematical logical interpretation that it could well be Cat A.... but I
know nothing of the imperfect ways of the law... esp when said law is based
on at least 3 different traditions and need interpretation with respect to
many countries to be fully of use...
