Yes, but as Coralie said in a previous message, W3C don't encourage to  
translate Working Drafts, because of the unstable nature of this type  
of document.

What kind of CC? Why do you think it's restrictive?

The copyright notice is here:

I don't believe it's restrictive. It's probably quite like a CC-BY-ND.
