I'm not (at least not yet) a foundation member and my opinion isn't 
therefore strictly relevant to this discussion.  Nonetheless: assuming 
an appropriate license could be drawn up and that it met with broad 
consensus among contributors, what would be your plan for confirming 
that contributors are willing to relicense their contributed data?  What 
would you do about contributors who didn't wish to relicense?
