"But to be GPL-compatible, a license must also be a copyleft license"
That is absolutely not true. MIT license is not copyleft and it is GPL compatible while CDDL is a copyleft license and is not compatible with GPL.
GPL compatible license must allow mixing code/work with GPL licensed code/creations.
