How do you know what the FSF's intentions are with respect to the GNU
FDL?  RMS has been extremely cagey when asked questions directly on this
point.

The FSF has published a paper explaining why the feel a "free
documentation license" is needed, but as far as I know they have never
gone on record as to exactly how each requirement of the GNU FDL defends
freedom.

If you have citations that will clarify these issues, please provide
them.
