But that is not the only reason, is it?

Under the same thought signing away your rights to the work lets 
digum to take asterisk out of gpl at will, perhaps after the open 
source community has made it a viable and over all profitable 
software platform?

I think the licensing is just a ruse to steal the software in a legal 
way at some future date while allowing them to keep a public domain 
source branch they can do as they please with, IMHO.
