License choice and copyright assignment are two different issues.  If
musl continues with a copyleft license, I'll be slightly disappointed
and that's about it.  If copyright is assigned to the FSF, it's going to
become terrible, just like everything else the FSF touches.  If
copyright were assigned to some arbitrary mediator just to shield you
from liability at work, I'd be less concerned... but the FSF is where
software goes to lose its mind.
