Why exactly does USB need to only export for GPL?

Current plans call for making the core USB subsystem GPL-only in early 2008. The argument here is that this subsystem has changed greatly over time, and that it is possible to create full-speed USB drivers in user space.
What does a changing API have to do with licensing? Man I hope the kernel guys don't end up like the debian people with their psycho political religion.
