I already did on the WHATWG list earlier, but yeah, I should have made  
a concrete proposal for the benefit of this list, too.

I suggest using the built-in key-value mechanisms of various popular  
file formats ((X)HTML, PNG, JPEG, Ogg, PDF, MP4, ID3, etc.) to encode  
author, license URI and, optionally, a non-author attribution name and  
attribution URL inside each file and for more complex cases not even  
trying to get software to migrate license data automatically. (That  
is, I'd make the simple case simple and I'd just give up on trying to  
carry forward license data when one mashes several photos into a video  
track of a video file.)
