It would be stupid of them to refuse to accept it since much of what they are working with is already under the GPL.
I believe the article says refuse to accept it is exactly what Canonical will do, stupid or not. And it mentions a few reasons that it might not be stupid. It would be a waste of time to send in a patch to someone who has made it clear he won't use code to which you hold the copyright.
And FSF has been rejecting code like that forever too.
