What I'm suggesting is that regardless of which license we decide to use as 
a project, an editor submitting content to the project is effectively 
giving up any right they may have to decide what is done with that content, 
including the meta content like their true name.  Including it's use as freely 
reusable content.

I don't see this right you seem to hold that content submit, or meta 
content that is tagged along with it, somehow enjoys a special position other than 
what the project itself decides it should or should not enjoy.  From where 
does this extra right stem?  The editor waives all rights to their 
submissions.  That's my position.

I would suggest even further, that they are giving up any right to decide 
what is done, *even if* the licensing terms should change.
I know others don't hold that viewpoint.
