[cc-licenses] SA Section 2(a)(5) uncontroversial

One solution for good compatibility of licenses: empower fans/users of CC
everywhere to vet each license before granting compatibility, and for 'renewal'
every year.

If Creative Commons isn't sure about this path, they can wait to see how it
works for our licensing as we begin to test this strategy next year on seed
