I would say Stallman has understood you quite well, and then consciously rejected your position.

Do you now see why such an arbitrary "rejection of a position" combined with "unparalleled legal power" scares most of the kernel developers?
If Linus did that, and if it mattered to enough people, they'd walk away and start another kernel tree.
