Well, in certain countries the rights just cannot be waived, from what
I have heard. Thus, if the author were to change their mind about
their image being "free", they could take it back. I don't know that
that legal right exists in the US. I can imagine that many authors
would _want_ to make the image non-free again if something like that
happened (the image were modified to mock them).
