You can *never* change the license at all without consent from the authors. It may be that an author wants his code to be available under "version 2.1 or later", not under v3. :-( But IANAL, so take this as another of these non-authoritative contributions to a license discussion thread.. ;-/ (FWIW, I repeatedly read the above on the kde-core-devel list.)
