You're confused about the requirements.

Releasing it under the CC0 is no better than under the GPL.  Both are
perfectly sufficient licenses to give us the right to use your code,
technically.  But Emacs policy is to only accept code with proper
copyright paperwork, so as long as you're not willing to sign new
paperwork we won't accept any code of yours.
