The relicensing scenario is also possible with the FSF since they require copyright attribution. They could take all their code and simply relicense it under a closed source license if they wanted (however unlikely this is to occur).
Actually, I don't think they could. aiui, that would be a breach of the contract assigning them the copyright. And as such, if they did release it under a closed source licence, there would be the mother of all legal explosions as far as FLOSS is concerned ...
