I have a few questions:

     1. How is CC0 distinct from the previous Public Domain Dedication?
     2. What will be the future of the Public Domain Dedication
        mechanism as CC0 goes to its "release version"?
     3. What is the advantage of the "CC0" brand over the previous
        Public Domain Dedication? Is it a sufficient advantage to
        justify any confusion in people's minds about the two projects?
     4. How will CC0 be positioned next to the six core licenses? Will
        it be an option on the license chooser?
