Just to make one distinction: looking up the term "sublicense"
(, it says the meaning is "a license
granted by a licensee that grants some or all of the rights (as to a
patent) acquired under the original license".

So, "some or all" sounds like either redistributing the code under the
same MIT license, or else re-licensing it, granting less rights than
the MIT license provides (for example, the GPL).

Also, I'm guessing that implies "some or all *(but not more)* rights".
You of course can't grant *more* rights, since you're not the copyright
