Why is this even an issue?
The GPL doesn't use the term "linking" except when talking about
what license the author may want to choose.
Anyways: it's legal for elisp code to have a GPL-incompatible license.
However, it's not legal to distribute GPLed emacs with such code if that
code is intended to be used with emacs to implement some program.
