An interesting question. Questions of this nature should be addressed to
licensing at gnu.org. They do respond substantively to messages sent to
that address, though sometimes that takes a while because they need to
think about these things themselves.
There are also forums specifically dedicated to the discussion of
licensing issues. That's far more productive than random speculation on
product-specific mailing lists.
