I'm a late entry to the thread, please excuse.

If we kicked all GFDL out of main, how many upstreams would
reconsider their choice of licence? None? Few? Some? Many?

I am <-> that short of seconding dato's proposal, but I believe that
Debian is also in a position to make the world a better place by
asking upstreams to rethink. Or am I being completely naïve here?

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
