    The main purpose of copyright assignment is intended to
    ensure the FSF is able to enforce of the GPL for
    Emacs---which is definitely doable given that everyone
    else has assigned copyright.  Given this, and the fact
    that we have already made an effort to secure a
    copyright assignment from him, why not release Emacs 22
    while we continue to pursue copyright assignment?

That's pretty far from a `demand',
but it's definitely a `suggestion'.

So you are both equally right. :-)
