and my other posts in this go around as it relates to the need for a stronger 
copyleft for by-sa in the 4.x series.

The gpl idea I am familiar with from years back is mere aggregation.

The corresponding term I would put forth is creative aggregation.

The gpl uses "code" concepts as to what is creative aggregation or adaptation 
versus mere aggregation. These tests will not necessarily work for non-code. 
The gpl is designed to work for my code and I use it for that but not for my 
art and I don't want my art under it while that is the case. Plus I don't 
necessarily want my art under the umbrella of an organization that thinks 
that it is unethical for code to be non-Free while the same is not true for 
art. (non-code in general.)

all the best,
