He is suggesting that, but apparently without realizing that his 
proposal stands in direct contradiction to our precautionary principle 
(COM:PRP) and to the way Commons cares about its re-users.

We cannot, will not and do not plan to keep files where there is 
significant doubt about their freedom, even if we do not get a takedown 
notice from the copyright holders.
