Is there a mess?  Legally, it's perfectly clear that it's GPLv2-only.
The only legal problem is that if a file gets distributed separately
from the COPYING file, the recipient has no way of knowing her GPL
rights, except to ask the author or a distributor.  Big deal, you like
getting mail about your code, no? :-)

It's only a real problem if you want to delegate decisions about the
terms of your license to the FSF.  But I thought it was not your
intent to do so at that time.
