What are the precise problem with GDFL-licensed documents, when there
are no invariant sections? We can have a policy to accept any
GDFL-licensed document if it doesn't contain any invariant section.
Debian could have done so as well, but they decided to distinguish
themselves as unpragmatic nerds.
