If it was under GPL the people working in KDE or GNOME or other GPLed software could use it, thus improving it where they feel. There is currently an engine for kfm and another for the gnome-help browser. These desktop environments could benefit from a fully standard compliant browser engine. The mozilla project would attract more developers, and possibly ship sooner than later. I see no need for KDE or GNOME to write their own engines if an exellent one is available to them.
