I think the fear here is for situations like this:
Some small company sees how popular new editors like lighttable and
sublimetext is. Wanting to cash in on this easily they make a shiny
interface relying on this "emacs library" for doing the base work.

GPL ensures people don't just download the source code and do this,
but it is unclear whether providing this "emacs library" could open a
way to circumvent this.
