I just meant this as a marketing comment: GNU would risk losing a good deal of 
its foothold in the community, if it would say "this OS which can do far less 
than GNU/Linux is now the GNU system". 

But yes, Hurd can't say "we are the GNU system" - that's up to the whole GNU 
project to decide (thanks for cutting in before wrong ideas get a foothold).
