You need the permission of the owners of all the dependant code that
forms the work. The rules and licence are quite clear, as I think are the
views of several of the rights holders on both the interpretation and
intent of the licensing of their code.

Please go and discuss estoppel, wilful infringement and re-licensing with
your corporate attorneys. If you want to relicense components of the code
then please take the matter up with the corporate attorneys of the rights
holders concerned.
