The GPL legally establishes a heterogenuos pool of software.  To do
this, it uses the framework of copyright law.  While it can't change
copyright law, its inventive use of it factually establishes a software
ecosystem governed by different rules than that of software licensed as
isolated pieces.

"Defeating gravity by stacking bricks" would be a similar title.  Only
an utter moron would consider a title like that as a proposal for
antigravity devices.
