I personally suggest to *not* port v4.0 licenses to specific jurisdictions.
I think the right approach is striving to create international licenses
that work well in as many jurisdictions as possible, without the need
of porting them to each local jurisdiction.
I also reiterate the recommendation to introduce explicit one-way
* that allow redistribution of CC-by-sa-v4.0-licensed works under the
terms of the GNU GPL version 2 or any later version
* that allow redistribution of CC-by-v4.0-licensed works under the
terms of the zlib license: http://www.gzip.org/zlib/zlib_license.html
See my previous message  for more details.
I hope these suggestions may be implemented in the next draft.
New GnuPG key, see the transition document!
