That would be the best thing to do

You can't legally do that. If you release a
derivative work of a GFDL
work under something different than the GFDL, you violate the terms of
the license and your license terminates. So you commit copyright
infringement. It does nto mean that your derivative automatically
becomes GFDL. IANAL.
