The only "manpower" required should be a clause that allows converting
the document to be under the GPL, much like the clause used in the LGPL.
This would result in the most possible restrictions while still being
GPL compatible.

Any other GPL compatible license, must be "freer" than the GPL.

It would be nice to hear a representative of the FSF speak up about this
issue -- is this change to the GFDL happening? Does it actually address
Debian's concerns, or are invariant sections and transparent formats
going to remain?
