I doubt that would fly, at least on the CC website.  The last thing we 
need to do is confuse users more.

Via the API if you want to check whether a newer "generic" version is 
available than is available in your jurisdiction of interest, invoke the 
API again without a jurisdiction, compare licenses obtained.
