As I said, I think this scheme voids the GFDL -- at least based upon the 
plain language
of the GFDL license. It says clearly that sublicensing is prohibiting. 
Copyright holder or not, the
GFDL is a binding contract if you choose to accept it. At least that's 
my read of the plain
language of the license. Other folks may have another interpretation though.
