I think overall the biggest problem we face as a downstream of GNU is
the use of the GFDL with invariant sections and/or cover texts.  It's
not clear whether ordinary footsoldier hackers can do much about this,
which is mostly due to a policy emanating from the GNU project
management - but they can at least complain, and only comply when

(also a GNU maintainer)
