If you are looking at this question only in terms of the amount
of work involved, then I see why you think this is reasonable.
It is not a large amount of work.  But it is wrong to put
one developer of one version in a special position this way.

For the sake of enabling cooperation between the LDP and the GNU
project, I ask the LDP to remove this from the license recommendation.
