OK, here are some more comments:

I would like to see 4. a, b, and c have emphasised/bold "section titles"

As to termination, should it be made clear, or to use words found elsewhere in 
the license, "For the avoidance of doubt," should it be stated that when the 
license is terminated, the violating party loses rights to distribute, make 
derivatives, perform, etc. but not to posess anything they currently posess? 
If that is indeed the case.

With respect to 1 a versus 1 b, I would like to see a version of the license 
thatonly allows collective works if all the works in the collection are under 
the same license.

I think I might like to make use of such an option from time to time. Perhaps 
most of the time, I am not sure.

all the best,
