He spoke on the overall goal of increasing the compatibility of the GPL with other appropriate licenses (such as the MIT X11 and BSD licenses).This doesn't sound accurate. The GPL is already compatible with the X11 (X.org) license and the modified BSD license, while RMS has specifically stated that the GPL v3 is still incompatible with the original BSD advertising clause. My understanding was that the increased compatibility of GPL v3 referred to e.g. the Apache license.
