However, there's no explanation for why this is so. It'd be nice to
have a page saying why the FDL is recommended, and especially why it's
recommended over any of the Creative Commons licenses.

- The GFDL is specifically tailored for software documentation
- It already has a substantial following in that domain
- CC doesn't want to compete with the FSF

Ok :-)
I have found this doc on the web that focuses on some problems of Gnu-Fdl:
Are they true problems?
If yes, why not thinking about developing a new CC Gnu-Fdl documentation license?

Thank you,
