Exactly, the same would happen with an LGPL bridge to ArcPy ;)

*Forget Qgis for a moment*
I create an LGPL library on top of arcpy. Stop

Then, I release a GPL plugin for QGis that can import and use the above
LGPL library.
QGis + GPL imports an LGPL library and ONLY USE ITS CODE. The GPL doesn't
import arcpy, nor use any proprietary code.
