The GPL is known to be asymmetric (which is a problem) and even the founder
of Debian does not follow your strange ideas on interpreting the GPL.....

You still ignore facts!

I was quoting one of the leading X.org members who is obviously better

Do you really believe that it was posible to obtain a single letter
top level domain name in 2004?

X.org has been founded around 1987.
