true, though Stallman has made some statements about copyright and music
in the past which I believe were substantial contributions to the debate.

I disagree with you, the GNU FDL is a very decent documentation license.
It touches some points that others would not have thought about before.
However it is not the last word on what freedom a documentation needs
and how to archive this. Many have expected more, but for the focus
of transporting technical instructions in books, the GNU FDL is among
the best license I know, because clearly aimed at more freedom for society.
