It's certainly one of extremely few I've ever come across, and it's the only one which pertains to component/framework code like opensubdiv that I've seen, which is usually not GPL licenced either but rather uses permissive licencing like BSD/MIT.

That's the whole point of GPL, to keep the source code open. Just like the whole point of MS-PL is to serve proprietary needs while still employing the reciprocal nature of GPL.
