Incidentally, the "Version 1.2 or any later version" wording on the edit 
window is an exclusively English Wikipedia phenomenon, but does not 
appear elsewhere that I am aware. Click edit at Wiktionary and you'll 
notice that you are only agreeing to release it under the GFDL. Even the 
wording on enwp only dates from March 
Hopefully there is more to the argument than the "clicking submit" 
point, considering that the "or later" clause tends to be buried in some 
project-space "Copyright" page.
