I find this topic interesting. I was thinking along similar lines for works 
licensed CC BY-SA. My thought was to find a way for the person using the 
license to choose whether to simply pay as if the work was all rights 
reserved if that was simpler for them book keeping wise or to claim the CC 
BY-SA use and provide "accounting stats" to the collection society.

I think this would need to cooperation of the various societies and the 
artists would have to join their appropriate society.
