I'm not sure Microsoft would deliberately make specification-related "IP" (as they call it)
incompatible license-wise with the GNU licenses. Remember, Microsoft has three arms:
Development, PR, and Legal, and them making the .NET ECMA-submitted stuff non-GPL-compatible
would simply be an unmitigated PR disaster.
