Dear Wolfram, 

this sounds like what I am proposing with an alternative solution

I dont think that you are right about the GPL, I think you are looking
to copyright for a solution for an EULA.

You need a stronger agreement to bind all the networked users to single
agreed on version of the software for the duration of the transation
and a means to audit that software.

The gpl is fine for what it does, trying to make that a stronger
contract is dangerous.

at least in my opinion, I am not a lawyer.
