As far as I understand it, and I'm not a lawyer, for the BY and BY-NC
licenses there should be nothing stopping you from licensing
derivatives under some non-CC license, as long as you abide by all the
terms of the CC license *and* the new license doesn't contradict or
conflict with anything in the original CC license.  What licenses
those may be, I do not know.
