This can be dealt with by simply prescribing that works used in a
semantic interdependency must be all under a "compatible license",
using a similar whitelist that is now being developed for CC-BY-SA
3.0. The works remain separately licensed, but copyleft requires that
they all are _freely_ licensed.
