Surely converting them to a Sword module constitutes altering or
modifying their form and is, as such, *explicitly* forbidden?

Converting to a Sword module is a form of duplication...
Unless your license *explicitly* gives you that right, overruling the
copyright notice (is that even possible?), then the conversion is a
copyright infringement. I don't believe one needs to be a lawyer to
