This is a good point/question. However, perhaps we need to be careful with 
what exactly is going on.

Situation 1:

Someone wants to put their own original work under a BY-SA license. A work for 
which they have licensed some non-Free (or in general some non-BY-SA 
compatible) works that they will include somehow in their work.

Situation 2:

Someone takes someone else's BY-SA work and includes some of their own 
non-BY-SA compatible licensed works in it.

Are there other possibilities which do not break down to one of these two?
