Unless the program is on a server, and the guy on the client side demands your modifications. Closing the webapp "loophole" IS about restricting usage!

Nonsense. The GPLv3 does not apply to anything like this. The closest that any license applies to a webapp "loophole" is the Affero GPL. The latest version is here:
