The alternative to distributing a copy of the GPL in base-files would be
to distribute a copy of it in every package that contains code under the
GPL. Since we could trivially satisfy your complaint by including a tiny
quantity of GPLed code in base-files, pragmatism suggests that it's a
stupid suggestion.
