Thats something to take up with the FSF. The implementation of the GPLv3
is badly flawed by allowing that activity to continue. The original act
was Novell's, but the ongoing problem is caused by the FSF. And the
sooner the FSF realise that and issue a GPL v3.1 removing that exemption
the better.

The FSF not Gnome wrote Novell the get out clause.
