If this is pursued, I would hope the reasoning is
next to the notice of copyright... If I understand
material would still be licensed CC-BY so Wikimedia
could not declare it
All Rights Reserved, but it's very unusual at first
sight to say that
Wikimedia can do "anything we like" with one's work.
Jimbo's proposal look fine to me. We will need to have
an official statement of the Foundation with regards
to the release of right, to which all wikinews may
refer to explain the modification of license compare
to other projects.
