[cc-devel] bug or feature? Old license urls don't resolve to deed but to CC homepage.

We continue to support license URLs, but that doesn't look like a
valid license URL. Starting with version 2.0 we standardized on
placing the commercial term before the derivatives term, so that URL
should be http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.0/nl/deed.nl
I'm wondering if that was a hand constructed URL or if we had a bug at
one point in the chooser.
