I'm quite happy to see the effort to address the concerns from Debian.

Although it seemed quite clear to me that this was nothing more than
a minor quibble, it's just silly that CC-By is considered non-free
by the DFSG standards (and pretty inconvenient for me, since I use
both Debian and some CC licenses).  I learned of this argument only
recently, and I do see their point.  What they wanted to do with the
wording didn't seem very controversial, so I hope it just gets folded in.

I think it will be interesting to see what FSF does with the next version
of the GNU FDL -- it seems likely that it'll be worth waiting for that. 
I personally
would rather see one-way FDL -> CC-By-SA compatibility.  It remains to be
seen whether the FSF would agree with me on that, though. ;-)
