The point is to explain to the world what is wrong with the GFDL.  If
someone still wants to use it, on works which are not yet written, or
whose license can still be changed (all the copyright holders are still
around and can agree on this), Nathaniel's option gives clear steps
for what they need to do.

Someone who holds a copyright on GFDL-licensed material is much more
likely to be willing to add Nathaniel's amendments to the terms than to
be willing to consider a completely different license.  Especially
since we don't have any other "documentation licenses" to recommend at
this time (although the next revision of the CC family of licenses will
probably include one).
