There is one other difference. Every other contribution is done by the 
author of the file. It's not the same thing when you say "this is my file 
and it's public domain" versus when you say "I got this file from various 
sites, and they are public domain".

I would love to see these images added to OpenClipArt, but I also 
understand the concerns expressed here. And as Stephen pointed out, it 
looks like the site owner doesn't really understand what public domain is.
