I don't know what it means to anyone and I am not sure it matters to me. I
think what matters to me is if any properly defined collections as any
country's law defines them get copyright protection.
I think my desire would be to affect anything that copyright law gives
protection to that could incorporate my work and prevent me from using my
work in the same way as the person I grant a BY-SA license to can use it.
I don't want my BY-SA licensee to be ably to use my BY-SA work, or a part of
it, or a derivative of it, in any way that I cannot also use it, using
copyright protection they get on whatever uses it, a part of it, or a
derivative/adaptation of it. (This includes related rights they may be
granted by law.)
So, if they don't get any copyright protection that they can use to restrict
me using the "collection" or whatever in the same way that they do, fine,
they have no cpoyrights on the collection to use to restrict me. But if they
do get copyright protection that they can use to restrict my using
the "collection" or whatever in the same way that they do, not fine. I don't
want to grant them the right (license them) to make copies in that case.

Is that an acceptable alternative to defining what I mean by collection?
all the best,
