In any case this is completely irrelevant, we are not asking anybody to

Though I am strongly convinced about OpenSource and am usually
supporting it, for my own works, I have decided not to apply GPLv3 (at
least for now), because there are details inside I consider
counterproductive[1] and ... because I prefer not to expose myself to
the risks of this license :)

And we choose not to provide you with our software, except on the terms
that we find best protect it.  We are very serious in this business, and
have had more to do with the threats, protections and realities around
GPL'ed software than many other projects.   We choose this licence for
good reason, and after wide consultation.

Did you mean to imply that the people using, say, the Apache license aren't serious?
