No. Every license, even two lines long, (and even the lack of a license)
puts the work in the context of a legal system. To fully understand the
implications of a license, you cannot only read it or its summary; you
have to be aware of the laws it touches on.

So, I do not see the point in arguing with word counts. The fact you
even skim through the license means you care about licensing matter.
Then you surely have spent the time to understand some basic notions
around licenses or should do so.
