I think that's a great idea, and definitely something we'd like to see.
I did write up a draft specification for how the license information
could be embedded in the file back in early 2004.  You can find the
draft at http://yergler.net/projects/cc-oasis/ccoasis.html.  It may be a
little dated -- I haven't actually looked into this problem since then.

The OOo file format has the advantage that it includes an XML file for
metadata, which CC license information would fit nicely into.  What we
need is someone willing to hack on the codebase and generate a user
interface and patch we could submit to them for inclusion.
