Sigh. It wasn't even that good first time round. Very sorry.

Here it is _without_ a line beginning 'From'.

Steve, Andy and I discussed it (as the 'licence working group' of the day,
though without the title) last year. 

IIRC, I thought it would be a valuable piece of "inclusion" - helping a
large piece of the community feel listened to, despite the fact that their
preferred option wasn't being adopted. Steve saw it as formalising the
scheme on the wiki and was fine with it. I don't remember what Andy thought. 

There was never any intention to offer it as one of three options for
relicensing, in the manner of "Do you vote for ODBL, CC-BY-SA, or PD?".
Rather, it would be an additional box you could tick when/if you agreed to
ODBL. Exactly the same as the wiki scheme, but the db user relationship is
