My further idea would be that <meta> tags would work fine. I'd think
that it'd be relatively easy to include the Dublin Core metadata
encoding schema for HTML:
...and simply point the DC.Rights element at the appropriate license:
This is, after all, a recommended use of Dublin Core. The specific
rights and prohibitions aren't encoded in the <meta> tags, but the
DCMI term "accessRights" seems appropriate:
And there's a Working Draft for Dublin Core for adding terms:
This is open for public comment right now; a statement from CC about
what we needed would probably go into the final recommendation.
Almost all browsers know not to render <link> + <meta> tags in-line
(I've never seen one that does, but I never question the stupidity of
browser developers), and some actually know what to do with them. They
don't have to be hidden in comments, or whatever.
