No. Proprietary software authors don't not use GPL code because they
prefer not to. They don't use it because the GPL prohibits them from
doing so. Free t-shirts are irrelevant. The GPL very deliberately
discriminates against proprietary software, in the interests of free
software. We just can't read DFSG#6 that broadly.
