The issue is what it costs you, not who benefits. The GPL requires the exact same thing -- that you make any intellectual contribution of your own available to others -- the only difference is that the GPL requires you give it to various users, and the ABC-DFL requires you give slightly more rights to ABC. By contrast, requiring you to email people, or pay a fee, is an entirely different cost, and they happen to be ones we find unacceptably awkward as far as maintaining packages go.
