Ideal free and open source license

Minimized GPL copyleft. Combine permissions of GPLv3 and permissions of LGPLv2.1.

Linking: with restrictions
Modification: copylefted
Distribution: copylefted
Patent grant: yes
Private use: yes
Sublicensing: yes
TM grant: manually

Copyleft:
Allow some rights to be reserved but not all. Maybe allow remix and commercial use to be reserved but not allow sharing to be reserved.
Allow software to be mixed/shared source but not,pure closed source.
Maybe more requirements for statically loaded modules and more lenient rules for dynamically loaded modules… Based on the way of LGPL.
Freedom 0 allows use, freedom 1 allows studying the source (and modifying it for personal use), freedom 2 allows sharing and redistribution of verbatim copies, and freedom 3 allows redistribution of modified copies. Maybe require freedoms 1 and 2 along with freedom 0 for binary(file or library), and require freedom 1 along with freedom 0 for the executable program.
