It might become a problem if your site ever moves. I think this is
what Walter meant with cover texts that are misleading.
Fortunately, unlike with Invariant Sections, at least *you* have
authority to change the cover text. That doesn't help if you
can no longer be contacted, though. People do drop off the
net sometimes :)

In that case, if you do go with the GFDL, you should use version 1.2.
Version 1.1 is problematic with translations.
