No, we don't find this helpful at all.

The FSF has no right to forcefully rename what we call our OS. We call
it "Arch Linux" because we like that name. We don't call it "Arch
GNU/Linux" because that sounds stupid.

The GPL explicitly allows us to distribute any software licensed under
it freely. There is no clause in the GPL that we have to include the
name "GNU" in our name in order to do so.

By the FSF's argument, we should call it "Arch
freedesktop/GNU/systemd/KDE/GNOME/Linux", but that sounds even worse.
