I didn't say it did.

I said that X was "more similar" to Y than it is to Z.  I didn't say X == Y.

(Note: I don't work for FSF or set policy for GNU.  FSFE and FSF are
independent in terms of management, staff, and finances.)

FWIW, barring a change in technology or in the way people use computers and
networks, I don't think that AGPL will be a widely used licence, so I don't
see any big GFDL-sized controversies coming.
