See: http://wiki.creativecommons.org/CCPlus

The way I get it is that your licensee can hold you to the license so that if 
you usethe license and try to restict them further than the license they can 
point to the "entire agreement" language and escape your attempt at further 

The CCPlus is a mechanism for you to grant permissions additional to the 
license. They get the license from you. They have a way to get additional 
permissions from you.

Could this be used to do what you want?

all the best,
