RMS explicitly blessed generated cross-references and the like under the
GPL.

So one way to move forward is to effectively have two manuals, one
containing traditional user-written text (GFDL), the other containing
generated text (GPL).  If you print it out as a book, the generated
part would just appear as an appendix to the manual, it's "mere
aggregation".
