    Since the GPL only applies to the people to whom you distribute your
    code, if you do not distribute the code, licensing it under the GPL is
    100% harmless to you.

    So the requirement to only load GPL'd code does not prevent people from
    loading code that they do not intend to distribute. They just have to
    label it as GPL and then not distribute it.
