   Should, or must ?

Depends on the project, some GNU projects might have legal troubles to
update to GPLv3.  So it's should. :-)

   Even if the FSF now has the copyright over my code (or what is left
   of it) in EMMS, I would find unpleasant that it decides to change
   "V2-or-later" to "V3-only".

The change is from V2-or-later to V3-or-later, not to V3-only.  If you
haven't read up on the license, I strongly recommend that you do, I
also recommend the essay `Why Upgrade to GPL V3?'
(http://gplv3.fsf.org/rms-why.html).  In either case, the decision to
update the license is up to the FSF, not the project developers.
