I think you're forgetting some of the variants of BSD-licensing, some of which is GPL compatible, (in the sense that you can take code under that license, and legally incorporate it as part of a GPL project) it's hard to see how exactly that is harming free software.
I agree with you that being "different" in itself is a huge minus for a license, even when the terms by themselves are acceptable, there's always the issues of user confusion and incompatibilities between different licenses.
