Isn't that what CC did?  I think Jon knows more about the background, but my
understanding is that they looked at the public domain declaration, found
that it couldn't be used widely, and tried to come up with the best possible
alternative.  Is there any reason to think we can do better?

Again, I may be wrong, but I recall that Jon was happy to move to CC0 (in
fact suggested it), but some contributors objected.

I personally prefer the simplicity of public-domain, but if the CC lawyers
really think it can't be done everywhere (and I have colleagues in France
who strongly say that this is the case in France), then maybe we should
think again about moving to CC0?
