This still disallows me or anyone else to mix it with any GPL v2+ work.

The only constructive solution (without a fork) that could actually work
for everyone is the one I suggested and that was strongly opposed:

  Existing copyrighted information on this Wiki is licensed under the GNU
  General Public License, version 2. By editing this wiki, you release
  your contributions under the GNU General Public License; version 2 or
  (at your option) any later version is license.

And then work out the license of every existing page with all its authors.
