Agreed, my initial error!

Agreed. I also question the need for new licenses.

I agree in sofar as I think we need less licenses: less attraction to the
NC-license. Removing the NC license altogether is not a fair idea, but
limiting it to time-limited-NC-condition only seemed a good compromise to

Also, many platforms support multiple CC license, none that I now supports
what you describe. If you are an expert, or owner of your own platform, yes
you can do it of course.
