I *think* that's a very interesting question which
I would like to answer but I'm not sure enough that
I understand the question.

Please excuse me for being a stickler for language but
I'm actually not sure what you mean by "your". 
Do you mean *my* (Tom's) customers?  Or
Red Hat's?  Or are you just asking in general why
any customer of a free software product would
actually give a whit about the integrity of the GPL?
or something else?
