I don't see how an indemnity clause would affect that,
really. Wouldn't the effect there be something along the lines of "you
can do what you want with this, but you take responsibility for
it". Is it reasonable to expect a publisher to be sued for the actions
of someone using their content under the terms of a blanket license?

I'm not clear on the distinction. Can you explain the difference?
