As long as there are proprietary libraries which comes with restrictions 
like "You may not use this library commercially if you don't pay me", even if 
you are just linking it dynamically, an "interpretion" like this is not only 
done by the FSF and hence not "GNU logic".

If restrictions like this are enforcable, then the GPL is enforcable too.
