If you want to argue that the GPL in any way forces companies to meaningfully contribute back, you haven't paid even the slightest bit of attention to any major GPL-licensed project.
I didn't argue that it "forces" anyone to do anything. That's why I wrote that an "avenue of potential incorporation" of modifications to a project exists, as opposed to a mechanism to compel organisations to contribute changes upstream.
And much of your response actually restates what I wrote, in fact, which I suppose I should take as some kind of compliment.
