Not at all. The "mere aggregation" clause of the GPL is simply
an explanation of what is already true without that clause. It
does not grant any additional permissions beyond what copyright
law already permits. It is the equivalent of saying that when I
have permission to make copies of two separate books, I may ship
those two copies in the same box. Those permissions do not give
me the right to create an omnibus edition combining the two books
into a single one.

You are demonstrably incorrect since copyright law is at pains to
define the concepts of "collective work" and "compilation".

What for? What's there is irrelevant and incorrect.
