i am not sure if it is a good idea to include the database language  
in the unported licenses. as you note above the database language  
should only be included in jursdictions where there is sui generis  
protection of databases. now unported is not a jurisdiction, but the  
majority of jurisdictions that do not have ported CC licenses does  
not have sui generis protection of databases and therefor i would  
that there is no real urgency to include this language in the  
unported licenses

all the best,
