Perhaps there are places who want to prevent better versions than their own from ever being available and use this to justify the GPL restrictions on combinations with other components. From a user's perspective, though, this is just as harmful as any other anti-competitive ploy to limit choices. And unfortunately, even if the business reasons to maintain the restrictions on a particular product go away, the restrictions, once applied, never do.

That's factually incorrect. Relicensing, dual or even tri licensing happens all the time.
