You're begging the question.  Your "conclusion" is that the source need
only be available if it's been modified, and, since the source wasn't
modified, then it need not be available.

I am not arguing the meaning of the text contained in the GPL, I am
saying that, unless the code has been modified in some useful way, then
it is of no value to the community.

So you don't dispute the legality of the GPL?  You're just find it
inconvenient?  If so, then don't distribute GPL'd software and go about
your business.

I wouldn't think of distributing it. I also think that suing someone over not distributing it is just a silly ego trip for the authors.
