I agree that if you're contributing stuff to some site where the obvious 
intention is to share things with others, you probably shouldn't expect to 
restrict how that content is used, especially if those contributions involve 
editing other people's work, but the lack of any explicit licensing terms 
means that we can't just apply CC0 to what we already have.

I don't think that it would be too difficult to get people to agree to 
relicensing, but I was just saying that nobody seemed to think it was worth 
doing in the first place. Personally, I do think it is worth it if we are to 
regard the content as useful or valuable, and if Justin wants to use the 
decorators content in some other context, I encourage him to at least 
consider that approach for that page before giving up.
