Precisely. In order for a many-authored GPLed work to be a joint work,
you would need to demonstrate that each author has so intended, and has
intended to give all the co-authors equal rights to the work. You would
fail, since each author has dictated the terms under which others may
make derivative works or copy and distribute the work, namely the GPL.
