The ability to scour image page histories for people switching
licenses after the fact has been instrumental to detecting dishonestly
tagged material on enwiki (people uploading content found on the web,
tagging some website, seeing the notice, changing to non-commercial,
seeing the notice then finally selecting pd-self, for example). If we

images, we should store the intermediate results so that searching for
the right answer.
If there is concern that people will see your mistakes and criticize
you for them thats a social problem.
