    That is immaterial.  It's like saying that if code were pretty much
entirely free except for, say, a few choice segments or that if such
provisions were in the GPL and the original programmer declared the entire
codebase "invariant" it was still open and free.

    Trust me, I can see both sides of this debate which is pretty much why I
kinda snicker at the whole notion of the GFDL.  Code is one thing, technical
documentation is close to code.  But "documents" by and large are not.
