Btw. If list members would like me to, I would be happy to approach the
FSF with Doug's proposed additional clause, and find out if they think
such a revision is GPL-compatible. Obviously, I'd explain the purpose
of the project, and why we felt the clause was relevant.

Quite possibly, FSF attorneys have dealt with similar issues in the
past. They may have boilerplate language they would recommend and/or
raise legal questions we have not considered. Then again... they may
also just be too busy to get back with answers. I dunno.

Yours, David...
