... could use the original Doom 3 assets and resources with the new code to effectively get Doom 3 BFG edition for free?
Possibly, but the BFG edition also has re-done artwork, and any art assets pulled from the game would be against the GPL.
But the new lighting, sound, anything that is pure code could theoretically be back ported to the old doom. Doom 3 BFG though may have new entities that the old Doom 3 may not have had, so that would be a lot of work.
There has been surprisingly little activity in the Doom 3 (original) source code ports, as far as I know just iodoom3 and I don;t even think there are any public releases of that yet.
