Well, that organization may be commited to free software but that does not mean their actions are appropriate. It doesn't help to enforce the GPL if more and more projects are turning away from copyleft. Meanwhile, a major part of the world's Linux installations are not under the GPL (except for the kernel) but under more permissive licenses (Android); or used without FSF copyrighed GPL code (almost all embedded Linux systems).
I consider it more important to decide on a useful strategy to foster the use of copyleft code. Recent pejorative comments from RMS about projects helping to migrate from Android to Cyanogenmod are doing exactly the opposite: they drive user, willing to go for more freedom, permanently away from free software. The gcc/LLVM case will even be worse if you look a few years in the future after many students have learned to hack LLVM instead of gcc.
