    I really don't see the point.

    This makes things *worse*.

    "Dual BSD/GPL" actually tells you something: it tells you that you can
    take that code, and use it in a BSD project.

    In contrast "GPL-compatible" tells you nothing at all.

    So you are actually removing real information, and just making things
    harder for everybody.
