Yes, but the simple fact is that in 2003 digital content is generally
for music, video, images, or text. You have good points about
non-digital works, which aren't addressed yet on the CC site at all.

(BTW, I'm wondering how to volunteer to do this, write things for the
site, etc. Any pointers, anyone?)

Well, it makes sense from a standpoint of: what will people be allowed
to do with my stuff? What can I do with CC-licensed stuff? It's a lot
easier to say, "This is a Collective Work, this is a Derivative Work"
than to say, "These are the things you can do with by-nc-sa, these are
the things you can do with by-nd-nc", or whatever.
