I checked it before asking and of course I read many times the xouvert home 

The question was: "why not make it GPL instead of X11/MIT?"

The answer was: "because we could not recontribute to XFree86"

Then: "GPL would not cause anything <bad> about this, let's not forget it is 
an independent fork, maybe GPL would make it better".
