No, I could have accomplished quite the same point by saying that there are
"over 50" versions, which is clearly true (I'm actually still not convinced
that "over 100" isn't correct - I counted 92 just between 2.5 and 3.0, but I
may have double-counted, there doesn't seem to be a clear list of them all).

My point still stands.  There are many versions of CC-BY-SA 3.0.  The
proposal should be specific as to which one(s) it is talking about.  Adding
the words "any version of" or "all versions of" or "the Unported version of"
or "the US version of" would make this clear.
