I believe this is pretty well agreed. 

However, realize that if you release a work under the GFDL, someone else
can add a cover text or invariant section, and it will then be impossible
for you to incorporate their changes into your own version.

I recommend using the GPL and a notice of interpretation that you consider 
formatted, printed works "binary" and machine-readable editable input
