The difference is not ridiculous, it is an important one: the FSF
licenses have a "viral" cause, preserving freedom, while the PD
dedication gives up event that.
For all my non-clipart work I also prefer to add a viral clause, be it
under the form of GPL or CC-BY-SA.

The original thinking when we went with PD was that clipart images are
building blocks and to be useful they must be totally unrestricted, no
attribution required, no viral freedom preservation, no nothing.
