My understanding of that clause has always been that if something is
first published on a Wikimedia project then it has to be dual
licensed, if it is published elsewhere first, then it can be CC only.
(This does mean that anyone wanting to bypass the dual licensing can
do so rather easily, but that's the FSF's problem - they are the ones
that required the dual licensing.)
