Why? The file is 1.5kB, there's no need to minimize it.  Does LibreJS

That's the case already, please try it.

It does, it's GPL, and the copyright is assigned to the FSF, you can
read the file, it's only 5 small functions:

Shouldn't LibreJS (a web browser extension, in no way a web standard) be
able to recognize GPL files by itself?

Else it seems to me that this extension does not fit the real world, it
looks like it's even blocking jQuery, probably the most used JS library,
which is MIT.

Of course, that will be done!
