Your assertions are demonstrably false.

Example:  a work including works under both the GPL and BSD licenses is
not governed by one license, but by both.  The terms of both the GPL and
the BSD license must be satisfied.  Unless you are specifically given
the option to chose licensing under one license or the other (your noted
case is the example where this exception is granted), then you are
bound, in the combined work, by the terms of both licenses.

I'm including a list of packages from my Debian installation which are
licensed under such terms, with this email.

I consider this a suitably strong refutation by example of your

    As far as I know, you cannot distribute a work under two licenses at
    the same time
