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 
understand such explicit instructions...
