GPL also adds the restriction of not adding any additional restrictions,
and that's a restriction by itself (I'm not saying that it's good or
It can also be counted as several additional restrictions, depending on

If someone includes Pd-extended as a whole in their OS, and modify BSD
externals, while keeping them bundled with the rest of Pd-extended, they
don't have to distribute the source to those modifications, despite your
claim that Pd-extended has a license « as a whole ». That person doesn't
have to take anything apart (debundle) or whatever.
The « as a whole » concept has a more limited applicability than what you
seem to be claiming.
