First of all I chose the GPL not because I had to, but because I wanted it.
I want my package to be Free Software and I want it to stay free as in freedom.

Free Software means among other things that anybody can make changes as he wishes.
If someone offers a package which he calls Free Software and doesn't allow to
make changes to everything, then I would call that cheating.
I want my whole software package to be Free Software and I don't want to be cheating!

Well, maybe I could use the logo on my website... The website is not Free Software.
