While I understand that the people active on this list on this topic
are unrepresentative of most CC users (e.g., most people here seem to
only use or support the most permissive licenses which only represent
a small portion of CC license use), I was curious about one potential

Since the dominant argument against parallel distribution on this
list seems to boil down to a critique that the clause provide a way
to sidestep copyleft, is there any objection to a parallel
distribution clause only for those licenses that do not include the
SA option?
