I for one am *glad* OCAL is not a launch partner for CC0: from Rejon's 
blog I know that CC0 was in the making for quite some time and if OCAL 
was one of its target, I would have expected  us to be asked for input 
during its making, not only after the fact.

In my perception, CC0 was crafted mostly for the branding, as the old PD 
dedication did not have the words "Creative Commons" anywhere in its name.
