What do you think about it.  I have to admit that I do not really understand
all this licensing fuss, but if I'm not completely wrong GFDL is not
incompatible to DFSG per se but only if there are some certain additions.

Anyway, I would just choose a DFSG compatible license to avoid all trouble
but I will not spend my time with licensing issues (flame wars).  Just give
concise and well thought reasons which make absolutely clear that cdd-doc
is incompatible to DFSG and make a suggestion which would fix that.

Kind regards
