It's not a substitute, but I don't think it's worse. Fair use means that the
picture can be used by Wikipedia on a specific page in a specific way
because we don't need permission. Non-commercial means that Wikipedia can
use it, as well as anyone using Wikipedia non-commercially, however they
please because we have permission. I'm not happy with the second, but it
surely is closer to what we want than the first.
