This strikes me as a very useful thing to have and I hope CC will consider
it as another way to help understand the CC licenses. Placing a list like
Prodromou's on their website (corrected, if there are any errors, of course)
could be quite beneficial (even though it's not the binding text).

I searched the archives for something just like this so I can be sure I'm
doing the right thing in preparing CC-licensed works for my non-commercial
community radio show.

I think these would be considered correct, according to
where Glenn Otis Brown says

"All our current licenses allow broadcast, digital or terrestrial. So a
cc-licensed song can be played w/o the licensor's consent."

Perhaps this also includes "Sharing on a peer-to-peer network" (because the
line between playing over Internet radio and sharing via a peer-to-peer
network seems so incredibly thin to me).
