GFDL Version issue: Can simply syncing GFDL Licence document solve GFDL version imcompatibility?

PiaCarrot
Each article on most editions on wikipedia are licenced under
"GFDL 1.2 or later", but articles on ja.wp are currently licenced
under "GFDL 1.1 or later". But, some images and some articles
on ja.wp are duplicated from other language edition of wikipedia,
it seems GFDL violation because GFDL version imcompatibility.
("Permission is granted to use under GFDL 1.2 or later" can be
read "Permission isn't granted under GFDL 1.1 or prior")

If licence on ja.wp shifted to "GFDL 1.2 or later" simply,
can their "Duplicated articles and images" be relieved
from  GFDL version imcompatibility because article 9 of
GFDL licence?
(Can article 9 of GFDL licence used to relieve them from
GFDL version imcompatibility?)

This means that you cannot translate articles from en.wikipedia (and some
others) to ja.wikipedia.

I was planning to eventually propose such a shift for en.wikisource and
en.wikiquote. Both projects, plus sep11.wikipedia, all currently use "GFDL"
without a version number (effectively the same as "GFDL 1.1 or later") for
everything (project pages, talk pages) except sources and quotes. However, some
of the project pages are adaptations from en.wikipedia.
