The GPL has the advantage of making all further modifications free,
which is something you put at risk if you give your copyright to
someone else.
One thing you could do then is ask the people who are willing to do so
to license their programs under the Lesser GPL (or to sign an
agreement such as Helix Code could choose between the GPL and the
LGPL). The rest could be assigned to the FSF and be GPL'd. It seems
much simpler to me to do so.
