oh please.  Creative Commons is not the government, they can do
whatever they like. I think they (actually it's really only 2-3 really
hard working people) did a pretty good job of trying to incorporate
feedback from this list. i'm sorry you feel so downtrodden, and i wish
it could have been different. I wish there had been a worldwide
plebecite to determine the proper name of the license. but alas, there
was not.

If it pisses you off, don't use the license! go make your own!  Or
just call it the Sampling License. Creative Commons cannot and will
not stop you. Call it whatever you like!  Start your own nonprofit!
Free us from the tyranny of Minister Gil!  Please do it somewhere
other than in my mailbox though...
