So, let me understand:

 * you admit that a new GFDL version is necessary to address its issues

 * there are not enough resources to start a public comment process
   right now

   with known issues, before it gets fixed

This puzzles me.
Wouldn't it be wiser to fix the license *first* and only *then* ask for
