Tricky. I think it is your choice to pick a license (actually, any
license at all, not restricted to free licenses if I remember the
assignment contract), but the FSF would be free to relicense _their_
copies with a free license (what that means is also defined in the
assignment contract) of their choice.
Of course, it makes no sense to pick a license that the FSF would likely
override in their copies, in order to avoid forks.
So far it does not look like they'd bother distributing anything in the
tests (heck, in all of XEmacs) at all, let alone relicensed.
