Indeed, and it now seems it won't happen, as the FSF hasn't moved
despite long-standing discussion efforts from Debian developers.

Furthermore, most people on debian-legal don't believe it is necessary
to create just another license. The best license for a program's
documentation is the same license as the program itself. It allows to
copy-paste things back and forth from examples to code, and to integrate
the program with the documentation without being concerned with legal

Of course, but having first the agreement of the core GNOME developers
will make this work much easier to integrate.
