If Alexander's view were to hold up in court, it wouldn't apply only
to GPL'ed works.  It would apply to all works - in particular, we
would be more free to make use of proprietary works (we think) we are

Also, proprietary vendors might be less afraid to tie their works to
GPL'ed works, so free software could become more widespread.
