[Foundation-l] What's our dream license?

With all the talk about changing to CC-BY-SA, or making modifications
to the GFDL etc, it raises the question, what is our dream license? If
we are going through all the effort to modify the existing GFDL, and
mass-migrate the projects to a less restrictive license, maybe it
makes more sense for us to draft our own. Enough people have mentioned
concerns with CC-BY-SA to make me think that perhaps it isn't ideal
either. Of course, once we switch, we could pressure CC into making
changes to the license to suit us, but that seems like a waste of our
effort when we could draft a perfect license and then switch directly
to that.
