Yes, I agree, in general, but it's still not clear to me that section 12 of
LGPL can't be interpreted as "you can put a single GPL header" just like
"2 or later" in a GPLv2+ header can be interpreted as "you can update the
version number and use a single header".

What would be the difference?

That depends on whether the original author chose license terms that would
allow this.  In this case they did.
