So far so good. But if I may want to link against a LGPLv2 library at the
same time it won't work. Because from the matrix, my code will be treated
as GPLv3 which means I am not allow to link against LGPLv2.

I don't know how many (L)GPLv-only modules there are in GNOME, but any of
those will be in trouble when a core library changes its license. As
copyright is usually left to individuals in GNOME it is also nearly
impossible to change those modules.

So, I see pratical problems here...
