Rehashing GPL vs ZPL is off topic here, because the ZPL is the

And similarly, Plone core (at the very least, the CMFPlone package and the* namespace, but probably some or all other things too) are mandated by the Plone Foundation to be GPL licensed.

I personally prefer plone.* packages (which are more re-usable) to be LGPL or ZPL licensed so as to encourage re-use, but AFAIK there's never been a clear position on this, which is unfortunate.
