I think that has been floated already, personally, I might be able to live
with that, and even if only for straight SA and not NC-SA, but I would prefer
for selfish reasons that it applied to the original of straight BY works and
to BY derivatives left BY and to BY derivatives converted to BY-SA works. BY
derivatives going more closed are not my personal concern.
Others can speak for themselves.
Now, that is admittedly a selfish stance, I will be glad to take a stance that
is not as selfish should I be called on to do so.
all the best,
