Thank you for adding all those links and your insight! I thought that
its BY-SA which is more prohibitive, it turned that in fact its GFDL,
but the problem remains.
It seems that without cooperation with FSF we will not get out of it.
But GFDL was recently (3 years ago) changed - as i learned most
controversial was new invariant section - and now all their attention is
in GPL 3, so i don't think we can expect any changes soon. So we have to
seek one-sided solution.
If comatibility cannot be reached soon CC should advice using GFDL for
all educational works (textbooks, manuals, workbooks, dictionaries,
encyclopaedias etc.) to keep compatibility with existing resources. Do
you agree? This means adding one metatag and one question more on CC
main page - and on Science Commons page too.
