What I should have added: In the cases where the FSF is not the
Copyright holder, it is not improbable that the author can be convinced
to relicense it. Even if the FSF holds the copyright, the actual work is
done by humans who do not necessarily share the FSF's views on
documentation licensing, and might have some influence.
