I don't follow.  There's a difference between working on code whose
copyright is held by the FSF and working as part of an FSF-endorsed
project.

No, indeed the opposite occured: it was concluded that the EGCS experience
was a SUCCESS and that the FSF should use that model for its future
development of GCC.

Your understanding is incorrect.  Independence from the FSF was never an
issue.
