FWIW, it's clearly different: the GPL can be used for manuals, but is 
not an FDL-compatible licence, because it does not allow addition of 
unremovable adverts and the other FDL problems.  So, requiring 
FDL-compatibility means requiring something less sharing-protective for 
the manuals than the GPL.  :-/
