Filing a request is fine, if you want to do so. Just don't hold
your breath, there is a lot of FUD around GPLv3 in BSD-land¹ and
anything with a GPLv3 license in the base system will need core
(team) approval and a heck of a lot of a reason.
¹ Personally I do agree that GPLv3 was not very helpful, alas it's
not the end of the world, either.
