These proposals remind me of an older, now-defunct CC tool called Founder's
Copyright, which was limited to 14 years with a possible 14 year extension.
Obviously that is no longer promoted, if it still even exists.

Mike, it looks like its earlier URL is now gone:
http://www.creativecommons.org/projects/founderscopyright. I've found some
press releases about it and such. Maybe talking about what didn't work with
timed licenses would be illustrative in a discussion about implementing
them now?
