Parent article: Some GPLv3 clarifications from the FSF
GPLv3 just codifies existing practice in this area, where large projects with many stake holders like gcc, or the Linux kernel have used their specific exceptions to the GPL to make sure recepients of the code receive additional permissions that are not in the GPLv2, per se, or clarify the recepients obligations.
That has been going on since 1992, or so.
