Well, that's not actually entirely true; other political documents are
also not modifiable (like the GNU Manifesto, for example, and other
such sections of various manuals). 

However, you are certainly free to make a Brian Mays Public License,
take lots of text from the GPL, and issue that.  The real issue is the
integrity of the text under the name "GPL".
