I'm not sure which part you think is stupid. Do you:

1. Disagree with my paraphrasing of the GPL, in the first two
paragraphs?

2. Disagree with the obviously correct statement that the GPL
makes requirements about the licensing even of non-derived
works?

3. Disagree with my example, given in the final two paragraphs,
which makes it clear that a copyright licence _may_ make
restrictions on the licensing of even non-derived works. Note
that although my example is a licence where the licensee must
release _all_ future work under the same licence, I'm not
claiming that the GPL does this; I only claim that such a
licence is _possible_.
