It would be more complex than trying to understand
what NonCommercial means. How would you define what
is source, what has to be included, etc?
With software it's pretty clear that source code
and any scripts to compile/build/debug the code
is all part of teh "source".
But with CC stuff being specifically for anything
that is not software, the definition would be difficult.
I'm also not exactly sure if it would be useful or not.
Well, "useful" isn't the right word.
I'm thinking of the overhead that would be added to
every CC-SA-SRC project versus the amount of EXTRA
projects that could be done because everyone had to
provide source files. Would it encourage new projects
because source is available? or would it discourage
new projects because of the extra overhead?
Not sure, but they seem to be the questions that
need to be answered.
