	Maybe that program is more used, or more complicated... in short 
people need documentation more for one of the two programmes. Or the 
documentation provided for one of the programmes is enough and there is 
no need for derivatives. Etc.

	You can't drive any conclusion when the basics are different.

	To make a true experiment, one would have to release the same material 
under the two different licences and see what happens.
