I think you're still fundamentally missing the point of licenses, either
that or you are planning on re-writing, from scratch, a good percentage
of the LDP material.

This *cannot* work, it would breach the existing license conditions of
most of the documents. It would be illegal to do for any document with a
license that doesn't allow it.

It cannot work because it invalidates the very reason that licenses are there
in the first place. It's just a ridiculous notion.

Abandon it now.
