Like I said, I just got a general impression that a lawyer would have a

Sorry, bad choice of words. There are "guarantees" encoded into every license.
There are some encoded into the GPLv3 that aren't encoded into the GPLv2. You
can't remove or restrict those guarantees without violating the license. And
removing those guarantees would be the only way to make the GPLv3 fully
compatible with the GPLv2.
In this case I wasn't speaking literally. I should have been a lot more
specific there - it should say "practically impossible".
Dialup is like pissing through a pipette. Slow and excruciatingly painful.
