IANAL, yet afaict you control the copyright to subsystems you have
contributed. If that is core you basically control the kernel. That's
how the usb subsystem got pure "export gpl". A friend of mine now won't
use linux as he just wanted to play with it and needs to buy a new usb
wlan stick to play this game. Ain't gonna happen.

Same here, I can't get Linux on any box where user rather pay and keeps
running bunch of malware protection applications then to give up on fast
graphics, multimedia support, or some hardware.

You are absolutely right that when Linux makes 20% of the market, then
discussion with vendors will have quite different base, but keeping
principles, or "principles", right now, is efficient way to prevent that this
ever happen.
