I wouldn’t be so sure about that.

1. Without copyright assignment of all code involved, enforcement
   becomes much harder.
2. The Hurt still provides capabilities other OS’es don’t — while
   maintaining POSIX compatibility. We’ve seen audacity basically
   being taken over by a company in the past months, so the danger of
   losing Hurd to proprietarization rather got bigger than smaller.
