One can only do something if one is the copyright holder.
That's one of the reasons the FSF asks for copyright assignment on GNU

Other than that, they might be available as expert witness.

As for changes to the GNU GPL, remember the advises usage implies
forward compatibility.
That plus software always being Free makes it a complicated scenario for
making changes. They must be extremely well thought, because incresing
something in a legal document increases the chances that there can be a
loophole unseen due to complexity.
