   GFDL is free by all measures if you don't use invariant sections
   and so forth, isn't it? Does anyone dispute that? (I know Debian
   wouldn't accept it with invariant sections.)

A document licensed under the GFDL with invariant section is still
free, what it isn't though is free software; but it is free
