I think we may have our wires crossed somewhere. I think the person I was
responding to earlier on was talking of using a CC license or a proposed CC
license and then giving additional permissions in a statement seperate from
the license itself.
I wonder if additional permissions can be relied upon in light if the "entire
agreement" bit in the license itself.
