Except that the rights holders cannot demonstrate that the GPL
has been accepted, since it is a public license which does not
require communication of acceptance.

That's a total fabrication of your imagination. You can bet a
defendant will waive the GPL license in front of a judge and the
judge will say I will enforce the terms of this contract that are
not *illegal* (like sec. 2(b)).

That's why compliance actions are about copyright infringement.
Then it's up to the copiers to assert that they have accepted the
 GPL, in which case they are bound by its provisions.

Bound only by the *LEGAL PROVISIONS* of the GPL contract.
