I can remember that the title was "editorial changes", and I can't
understand it how this can change the importance of the sections.
Furthermore, the exceptions till now was not due to the fact that we
don't require documentation to be free (quite contrary, there was a
consensus on d-legal about GFDL not free), but due to the fact that we
want to have enough time to come up with a proper solution.

This means that we continue to deliver woody, which has more or less
exactly the same defects. If you really require a GR to prevent this,
this could happen - but it costs us a lot of time that I'd rather see
put into fixing bugs.
