Making it available for non-free download is fine by me and better than the current, illegal logo collection many of us use. Anyone wishing to sell software or hardware products using these logos, GPL-ed or not, should ask the logo owners for permission for their respective project. That's not different to the legal situation we already have. Asking the logo owners upfront to give carte blanche for commercial distribution of their logos is far too much to ask for. These people are already weary to permit having their logo displayed in software for personal use, believe me. We may ask for more permissions later, though. I have no problem doing the same round of requests in a year or two, when the collection is complete and when I can show logo owners that it has been a benefit to the community.
