The FSF designed the GPL explicitly to disallow anyone from unilaterally determining the destiny of the code it is applied to. This seems clear from their words and actions.
Once you apply the GPL to code you write, you give up almost all possibility of unilateral control of the code. In return, you get that same grant from all future contributors.
