I strongly agree that we need to clearly distinguish between "GPL v2" and

although we may also want to keep more precise semantics about versions in
the background.   I suppose that this case could be construed as a type of
Dual License such as "MPL 1.1 or LGPL 2.1" - e.g. "GPL v2 or GPL Later".
Don't confuse a conjunction of terms with a disjunction. GPLv2 and
"ANY later version" is a conjunction of
licensing terms, while 'MPL1.1 or LGPL 2.1' is a disjunction.
