   What they create "burdens" on are entities that want to take
   someone else's work and present it as their own.

No, that is what copyright law protects.  The GNU GPL just says that
you should give the same freedoms you have to your neighbour.

           Both the trademark license and the derivative works terms
   of the GPL are entirely IRRELEVANT to end users.

The GPL protects the end user freedom to get hold of the source code
(be it a deriviate or the original) of his or hers executable; so it
is _very_ relevant to end users.
