I feel very strongly about someone else's moral rights being imposed on me. Getting this wrong now will negativley affect the very nature of the licenses and may affect what can be achieved with the 3.0 licenses. Frankly I'm more interested in the underlying principles of the license remaining effective and in interoperability with the rest of the world (notably the Americas and Japan) than in hanging back to avoid walking out of step with a couple of the more extreme rights regimes in other EU states.

I am worried that there will be an outcry over this that will harm adoption not only of the UK licenses but of any license that can relicense work under the UK license.
I am also worried that (from a layperson's point of view) it possibly isn't viable to relicense any other work as CC-UK anyway because the CC-CA-interoperability module isn't in other licenses. But I do accept that interoperability is vital and that perhaps I'm worrying too much. :-)
