I don't think that more policies and guidelines are the answer; we already
official policies like this one that are routinely ignored because
people concentrate on licencing at deletion discussions to the exclusion of
all other issues. The correct answer is more effective use of existing
guidelines and policies, both through better education and awareness that
there are important issues beyond copyright on one hand, and if that
doesn't work, thinking about some heavier consequences for users and admins
who persistently ignore such policies.
