IF it's only intended to apply to documents that were written using that
license, I've no problem with it. I would actively discourage people
from using it if asked, but that's ok too.

It's still the authors choice.
It doesn't solve any problems with existing documentation though.

I believe the LDP should:
- state what its principles are in terms of minimum licensing
- provide a model license that is an example of those principles
- as a convenience to prospective authors, list other licenses that
conform to the LDP licensing principles.

I like Debians' approach to licensing, even if it did ruffle KDE/Qt
