We also don't need to gift a future CC with a moral panic when
everyone's CC+7 (or whatever) works are about to enter the public domain.

Founders' Copyright may not have seen mass adoption but it was certainly
promoted and some of CC's critics (honestly or not) confused it with
CC's main licences.

The market has already rejected this idea IMO, and it doesn't build a
commons *now*.
