Parent article: FSF should separate GPLv3 changes (Linux.com)
To the extent that exceptions are necessary, they can be written using section 7a. An LGPL-style exception will be necessary, and one it is in the public drafting process: http://gplv3.fsf.org/comments/lgpl-draft-1.html.
A DRM exception might be useful, if some people don't want to stop tivoisation but do want the other changes in the licence. Time will tell.
Otherwise, it sounds like he's suggesting that it would be good to have 10 incompatible GPLs, for mostly trivial reasons. I read the article, but I don't see an explanation for why that would be good.
