As of writing, I do not see any concrete reason for switching the
license. On the other hand, it is quite tedious to ask each single
developer who has ever contributed for permission.

However, feel free to submit your patches as "GPL v2 or later". If you
like the GPL 3 and trust the FSF, it does not hurt.
