If we were to add to each GFDL'd document a section (invariant or not)
saying, essentially, that we consider GFDL a non-free license (what else
can that section say?), we would have to start moving such documents to
nonfree at the same time.  Otherwise we'd be hypocrites.

Personally I believe that simply moving them to nonfree is far more
effective than such an added section.  Look at the publicity our stance
against KDE used to generate when it had its license problem.
