The FSF has given blanket permission to modify the GPL except for the preamble.
Or more exactly, You can modify the GPL, but if you do so you must not use the Preamble (unless FSF gives permission) and you may not name it in a way that would allow somebody to confuseyour modified licence for the GPL.
