Yeah, it looks like it does allow that.
I read the whole licence again before posting, but overlooked it.
Thanks for pointing it out.

(I do not endorse the GFDL.)
Me neither,
  because i prefer human-readable to legalese,
  and it seems it could grant more rights than it already does,
But if the authors provide their software and docs to me for free,
  then they're entitled to do that their way, as far as i'm concerned.

have fun !
