How is something "nominally" GPL? Either it's GPL or it's not GPL. The POSIX specifications aren't freely available either, does that mean that the entire kernel API is only "nominally" GPL? And if you didn't notice, other free kernels use the GPL'd code as "documentation" to write drivers for their kernels.
