If you (plural) would like to work up some legal text which would extend an existing, stock license (such as CC) - which has that extensibilty built into it - to put forth, I recommend it. Use the Community Request as a guide for your terms. Writing a new license from scratch would add significant time, effort, analysis and cost (to Cyan) by corporate lawyers, making its completion and approval unlikely in our lifetime. A proven, well-known license with a few extensions to address community concerns and the Cyan concerns which Mac previously outlined will get much faster results.
However, it appears that whatever route we follow, some major license edits will need to be made. I think OpenUru has the capability to do this on it's own and propose it to Cyan, rather than expecting them to write it up themselves (Which definitely won't happen).

If Deledrius and everyone else is ok with it, I'd be interested in heading up this portion of the operation (With some help no doubt.
). I'm no lawyer, but I'm pretty good around CC licenses, and, since it appears we may be basing the proposal on it, I know most of the basis of its legal code.
