What would such a clause say?

The person with the legal authority to sign a model release is not the
creator of the work, but the person who is depicted. Thus it clearly
can't be a standard part of the license to include the model release.

I think this requires a process outside of the license itself (though
something merely informative might appear in the license text and the
"deed") to make it more clear that other, non-copyright legal issues
might exist.
