But from a modeling point of view, I see the statement "any newer

No, it's not. GPLv3 and v2 conflict with each other, so a license
which is the conjunction of both v2 and v3 is nonsensical. There's a
reason why the full language of the recommended licensing clause for
GPL'ed works is
you are misreading my clause. When I say "any newer version" it
means I give you the choice to use any newer version.
Just that. The license is the concatenation of the GPL license plus
this statement.
