RMS quotes for this position:
"I am not sure if the GFDL is a
free software license, but I don't think the question matters."
"Changing the GFDL to permit removal of these sections
would defeat the purpose."
Eben Moglen quote against this position:
"We can't depend for the long run on distinguishing one bitstream
from another in order to figure out which rules apply."
Personally, I think we need the same freedoms if we ever want to
have sustainably up-to-date manuals for free software.
