That would be the perfect solution. BUT, I think you didn't consider that 
there is a precondition that has to be fulfilled: Is it possible to make a 
license that fits all needs?

That's the BIG IF in my opinion. And, as I wrote in my last message, at the 
moment I tend to think that there is no such license possible because the 
interests of the participants are antagonistic.

To write it again we have two interests:

1. People who want to make money selling WINE or derivates == anti xGPL
2. People who contribute for free or have another business model than the 
above == pro xGPL
