I don't think liability of authors should be the only reason to do these
things for. There's also the principle of copyleft. If we put material under
GFDL that would violate other people's copyrights when published under
certain non-exceptional circumstances (outside the US or for profit, to name
two that are important for this thread, we may be following the letter of
the GFDL in doing so, but definitely not the spirit of copyleft.
