I think the license could indeed be interpreted in that way. Actually
a couple of commercial applications showed up over the years that
definitely (or most probably) use GIMP code to some extent. This is at
least annoying and I wonder if we should start to defend our licence.
On the other hand we might be interested in establishing the GIMP
plug-in protocol and could even benefit from commercial apps
