No, it's to try to remove as many extraneous issues as possible.

Again, I assert that a program written to dynamically link with
a GPLed library, which requires that library for its operation,
may be distributed on any terms its author chooses. The FSF says
that such a program must be distributed under the GPL. Wondering
about how the GPLed library gets to the user's machine isn't
germane as long as it gets there as authorized by the GPL.
