Important to whom? The GPL exists as a license which guarantees users
of such licensed software the freedom to run, read, modify, and share
it. The FSF cares about other licenses only to the extent of verifying
whether software licensed under them may be distributed under the
requirements of the GPL. The FSF does not care what people who talk
about "open source" say. They care about freedom for users.
