The purpose of the GPL is to guarantee a historical record of software
design for future examination.

Under the system you describe, closed software would be without ability to
reverse engineer within a generation.

Publication, Peer Review, and hypothesis testing is the  key to ALL
scintific engineering.

Cloak and Dagger Experiementation, which is what closed software is, will
result in a new dark ages.....
