But since the license URL must be included with (displayed with) the work, including it on the combo page:
a) doesn't do this.
b) licenses the combo page, causing an infinite loop. ;-)

You'd also need a statement saying "The page you have just come from is licensed....". I give it two minutes before someone starts using the combo page as a tarckback URL on Microsoft blogs. ;-)
