This is slightly misleading. The unmodifiable part of the GPL is the preamble, which is not technically a term of the license; one can make a license equivalent to the GPL in its terms (and so compatible with the GPL), but use only free license text. See http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#ModifyGPL for more information.
