To me second to the issue if a license will probably rated valid if it
comes before a court the question of be able to give and receive from
others is the main question.

The Debian Wiki projects is also currently discussing about their license.

An overview from

Some documentation in other projects, and their licenses

Ubuntu: CC-BY-SA (>=2.5)
Wikipedia: CC-BY-SA (>=3.0)
Opensuse: GFDL
Fedora: CC-BY-SA (>=3.0)
Gentoo: CC-BY-NC-SA (>=3.0)
TLDP: An aggregate of HowTos with various licenses. Default is GFDL 1.2

My adding this URLs to my firefox gave that additional information:
[1] With exception Ubuntu Packaging Guide
[2] Accepted licences are: Creative Commons BY-SA, Creative Commons BY,
GPL, MIT License, New BSD License, Open Publication License 1.0 with no

Maybe you could held a discussion about that issue (together with the
Debian people and others) on the next Linux Tag or something like it?
