For what its worth, I agree with you.

I can't afford lawyers on retainer to untangle things or to defend a
suite. Hence the reason would be happy to use a permissive GPL license
and assign any IP to GNU or FSF.

I don't take the position due to philosophy or perceived moral high
ground. Its simply economic for me. Anyone who has not experienced the
economics of a technology lawsuit is in for a shock.

In the past, I spent 10,000's on a lawyer in a technology case. I'm
not going through that again, unless I'm independently wealthy. (I
think I had the moral high ground since I was suing a chronic spammer
who harassed me for nearly 15 years. I tried for years to get off the
lists, and finally had to resort to the courts).
