There is a clause in the CC-BY-SA  (UK) version that permits
collection societies to collect royalties on behalf of the copyright
owner. This clause is absent from the unported version.

AFAIK, no.   However I haven't looked at anything other than 3.0
unported in any  detail.

My impression is that Creative Commons Foundation does tht list
somewhere on their website.  However, the only lists I've seen have
been created by end users.
