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.
