No heat in this response :-)

It's pretty simple:

If GPL compatibility in a license is seen as a desirable goal (and it
is, even by some who disagree with the GPL itself), and the FSF in the
person of RMS is the final arbiter of GPL compatibility, then to get
'official' GPL compatibility declared for your license, you have to deal
with RMS.

If your question was actually "why does anyone bother with GPL license
compatibility" then that is a separate discussion.
