I'm not certain what plh's intentions were, but given that we were asked 
to provide use cases as a group, I would like to gather together a 
response as a group.  I am planning on attending the AC meeting later 
this month, and would like to be able to represent the working group's 
position on this matter.

 From what I gather so far, this draft Excerpt License is not viewed as 
sufficient.  In particular:

1) Several (not just Ian's, but others as well) documents that are being 
developed with the intent of becoming the basis of a W3C Recommendation 
or Note will continue to be developed outside of the W3C.

2) Many in this working group will continue to point people who may be 
considering producing a derived work at the MIT-licensed version of such 
documents hosted outside of the W3C.

Let me know if this impression is inaccurate.
