Right, but that's just a preference then, not a refusal for v[23]-only.
If one of the other contributors to a v2-only file says the opposite
(v[23] yes, v2+ no), then I would still be able to relicense that file
to "v2 or v3", since that is allowed by your more permissive "v2+", right?

Otherwise the file would have to stay v2-only, which surely is worse
in your book, right?
