I probably agree.
However, waiving moral rights is probably out of scope. AFAICT not
being able to waive moral rights is central to the moral rights idea.
Obtaining the right to waive moral rights would involve court and
legislative battles. FLOSS and CC work within existing legal regimes,
the latter explicitly.
If moral rights really bug you perhaps you should start or work with an
existing organization that does attempt to challenge and change laws. I
note that immoralrights.org is available. :-)
IANAL, not speaking for CC, etc.
