The license you describe wouldn't qualify as open source.
That said, if you're primarily interested in software licenses you might
post your idea to http://creativecommons.org/discuss#commonwealth. The
researcher running that list is interested in such licensing ideas.
Another approach some are interested in exploring is to use a
restrictive CC license (e.g. with NC and/or ND properties) and build
standard terms and metadata to faciliate buying out the rights reserved.
These discussions have been sporadic and tentative, but see
http://sampleright.org and discussion at http://www.musicloversunion.org
for two examples.
Magnatune has implemented a system for purchasing rights reserved to its
releases, see for example
NB it isn't clear how any of the above fits into CC proper. I'm
interested in metadata interoperability at the very least and commercial
adoption of CC licenses and technologies in general, but I imagine some
of this can/would/will be legally and politically complex.
