I'm afraid I can't answer that question myself (I have no connection
with Creative Commons or the Law) but I think that adding 'extra'
clauses outside the license agreement is permissible, but would be quite
odd. I do ask the question though, is CC likely to provide some way of
customising the licenses by allowing people to type in extra license
clauses into text input boxes, and generating the license in its
entirety using PHP or something, which the user could copy and publish
onto their own website?
