Simon, at this point, there only content of the Item namespace are short
key descriptions and a few "facts" (like the status of the proposal and the
type of objects it applies to).  The linked images are licensed under their
own terms.

Would copying short description strings be considered fair use or even
re-licensable under CC0?   If not, would the community be ok to rewrite
them as part of the migration to the new system?  I suspect the migration
will still need to be done by hand, because there are many
links/templates/other markup that needs to be reworked, so this might not
that big of an extra challenge.
