This is not true. There was a time-limited permission to relicence
wiki content only. It expired last month and didn't apply here anyway
(it was added specifically to allow Wikipedia to change to CC-BY-SA
and very closely tailored to that situation). See that very FAQ you
linked in fact.

The FDL really seems like a dead licence at this point.
