Since implementors of the open web platform also have to implement IETF specifications, you should consider the IETF specification licenses, which were tuned especially for standards specifications. 


http://tools.ietf.org/html/bcp78#section-3.3 ("Right to produce derivative works")


http://trustee.ietf.org/license-info/
and
http://tools.ietf.org/html/bcp79


IMO you're better off looking there than at creative commons; the goals of the "creative commons" licenses (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/) are more oriented toward creative works of individuals ("creators, educators, scientists") and miss out on the nuances of uses of copyright to allow some kinds of derivative works and disallow others, in service of the goals of standards groups to combine innovation (divergence) with stability (convergence).
