Each one as some part of the argument that CC-BY-SA does or doesn't work.

It seems that the LWG have spent the last two years working on a license to
protect against events that has only happened as a consequence of them
presenting the license.

They have not yet presented any prior examples that justify their assertion
that the reason for this new license is because CC BY-SA is broken.

The LWG Emperor does not appear to have any clothes.
