Are we talking about open data or data on the web?  The charter is ambiguous on this point.

I agree that defining license terms and specific licences is out of scope,
but I think that its a best practice to publish data with licensing
information clearly defined, in both a human and machine-readable form.
That can be captured and recommended without restricting to specific
licences.

I've done some work in this area already:

http://theodi.org/guides/publishers-guide-to-the-open-data-rights-statement-vocabulary
http://theodi.org/guides/odrs-reusers-guide

Data published without licensing isn't really fit for reuse as otherwise
you can't determine what is legally permitted.
