LIcensing of libwp* and its effect on that of libcdr and libvisio

The older libwpd, libwpg and libwps libraries are LGPLv2+ The newer
libcdr and libvisio libraries written in the same style are
MPL/LGPL.v+2/GPLv2+ However, as they depend on libwp* stuff, and link
to them (statically) or maybe include inline C++ code from libwp*
headers, that is irrelevant, isn't it, they effectively become
LGPLv2+-only, too?

IANAL, am I missing something?
