I still think the use of POWDER is much more appropriate :)

Thanks for the pointer!

fyi, there's already a lightweight way to refer to a CC license
(rather than embed it), using the rel-license microformat:

<a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/" rel="license">cc
by 2.0</a>

This can be interpreted as RDF via GRDDL. There's a demo  (Joe
Lambda's Homepage) at [2], which uses grokCC.xsl at [3].

Ah, I'd better cc the grddl-wg on this - I just noticed the demo and XSLT
use:

rel='cc-license'

rather than

rel='license'

(Although the GRDDL result will presumably be the same).

Cheers,
Danny.
