On this basis no.

I think that the problem may arise from the name itself.  "Creative Commons" 
singular, or at least perceived as singular by many. Any yet, people who 
favour certain licences to the exclusion of others may have very little in 
common and very little to share with each other. They do not in fact have "a 
common pool to draw on" in creating new works in keeping with their ideals.

Of course, I may be missing the mark completely with this thought.
