Sure but when the way we are going to do this is different from what the
license says anyway.. and this is the implication, then there is no point in
throwing the child away with the bathing water as you propose. So imho we
should compare the two licenses and in essence we already agree that the
GFDL is not suitable to our needs so consequently we will do well by making
the switch as per your own argument.

The way I read Michael, it is an open issue never mind what license we
choose. It is therefore an issue whether we stay with the GFDL or not. It
in my opinion weird to allow arguments that have
no bearing whatsoever on
the subject make a difference.
I think we all accept that we currently interpret the GFDL very
loosely (probably to the point of not strictly following it), since it
doesn't really make sense for what we're doing with it. If we're going
to switch to a new license we ought to do it with the intention of
following it properly. That means we need to know what following it
properly entails before we can know if we want to switch.
