90% doesn't cut it. You need 100%. You won't get 100%. End of story.
Consider that several developers don't want GPLv3. (Linus among them...) So they claim their pieces of code but do not relicense them. What do you do -- spend a year rewriting half the kernel AND lose a few important contributors?
