You didn't create CD Recording drives either but still you introduced
a solution to the problem of writing to them. So, why should that stop
you now?

People ask you to simply dual-license it because:
 - it's almost NO effort to you
 - it will put to an END to any possible misinterpretations and
uncertainties - now and in the future
 - it will show your good will to engage in discussions
 - people might prefer GPL in some jurisdictions even if you think it's bullshit
